Weekend Assingment #202

I usually write about action and adventure with a sci-fi twist. To tell you the truth I tend to stear clear of all this lovy dovy stuff, it's highly illogical. But that's not to say that I don't have a heart yes even with all my superior intellect I too can become overcome with emotion. So here goes:

A love story that I found inspiring would be the tale of Laila El-Haddad. Her story is a real life drama set in the hostile city of Gaza. You can learn more about her by going to her blog (check out "Raising Yousuf, Unplugged: diary of a Palestinian mother" in the blog roll). After reading her story I soon saw that my problems didn't amount to a hill of beans compared to what she had to go through just to perserve her family. It makes you thankful for everything that you have.

Oh and I have no comments on the extra credit :)
