Pick Me Up, I'm feeling down...Benazir Bhutto Lost


So I went a little crazy on this one. I was feeling really sad yesterday after hearing of the assasination of Benazir Bhutto. I can't believe how lucky we are to live in democratic societies, even with their flaws.
I just can't imagine living somewhere where I had to question my safety and whether or not there was going to be a suicide bombing at the market that day. Nope, I need bread, and I'm going to the grocery store today and not once will I question my safety on the way there. Sorry, this is really depressing. I know Benazir was a Muslim, a true Muslim, who lived the true teachings of the Koran, not some extremist religion made up by men who hate.
I will send my prayers to her husband and three children. I want to let everyone know that I appreciate what she stood for and that her death was not in vain, because here I sit, a solitary SAHM whose life has been profoundly affected by her sacrifice for her people's freedoms.
Sorry, now I'm crying again.
Made this card to cheer me up and give thanks to my friend who is always there for me when I'm feeling down.
Recipe: Doodle wheel and doodle this stamps set. Finishing washers under brads for flower centers. Pink passion ink along with old olive.
Hope you have a great day.
