I want to honor this human computer genius because of what she represents to me: intelligence, character, courage, strength, love for science, for life, for freedom. I just love one of her quotes: “I didn’t feel any segregation. I knew it was there, but I didn’t feel it.” Oh, I forgot to tell you: she is an american woman who was considered “colored computer” when she worked for the NASA back in the fifties (color, gender, race, country patriotism are not that important to me. Intelligence is)

I mention one of her many quotes because that happens to me all the time. While people talk about being discriminated because they are short, fat, thin, black, brown, white, yellow, tall, thin, whatever ( I am sure I fit in many of these “colorful” name-callings), I just care about going on, about to continue with my interests in life: I am focussed. And that is what she was: a focussed-stubborn very smart woman who didn’t waste her time on menial things. She dedicated her mind to science. Political and social hate was put to the side, off the path she walked.

It is an honor to me to walk this earth Mrs. Katherine Johnson walks. It is a privilege to me to live in this earth at the same time Mrs. Johnson lives. 100 years old and she breathes the same air I do. How lucky I am! I send her my most utter respect and admiration for her work to science and exemplary life as a human being.

American Football Player Freddie Steinmark a True Inspiration for all and for Cancer Patients 10

Freddie Steinmark, an American college football player back in the 60’s. He played at the position of safety for the University of Texas Longhorns. He has inspired millions of people around the globe, patients with cancer or other terminal or incapacitated diseases. He is an inspiration to many, even to people who enjoy good health but want to be stronger everyday.

Yes, I admire him greatly. Last night I was watching the movie about his life: “My All American”. Needless to say I was crying at the end. I was inspired by Freddie’s heart, his powerful mind, his tremendous and furious courage, fearless to pain, always with a smile and kind attitude for everyone around him: a true hero.

He was born January 27, 1949, in Denver Colorado and died at the age of 22 in June 6, 1971, at the University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center, Houston, Texas, United States. Diagnosis: Congenital Osteosarcoma (bone cancer).

The amputation of his left leg, from the left hip, and the knowledge that his survival rate after the surgery was about a year, didn’t stop him from living!

Swallow Your Pain and Get Up!

Swallow Your Pain and Get Up! 11

“It hurts? Good, swallow the pain even if it burns and then continue your path to success…it’s worth it. ” — Dr. Martha A. Castro N., MD

There is no easy road to success, all paths have rocks and spines that can slow you down and even stop you from continuing to climb. Thank goodness for those rocks and spines, and thank you for those falls I took, because of them I am here.

When I was down, wanting to weep forever, letting myself subside, longing for the sorrow to swallow me in the depth of sadness, I just wanted to end my loneliness at once. But that feeling lasted a second, not more than a second because I was born to be happy even in the midst of tears, I was born to thrive even in the middle of falls; so I had to swallow my pride, my fear and pain and got up, every time I  I got up, again and again,  stronger than ever.

I swallowed my doleful memories and the wicked desire of others they had for me to fail vanished in the wind of a world where darkness reigns. I left them there…and I am here.

I’ve been following and reading a number of blogs for over five years now. I remember this blog by a Romanian journalist; I would spend hours reading the posts, the comments — oh, the comments were so funny and great. It was quite addictive. He got an insane number of comments, and I was jealous […]

Thoughts of the Day Being Strong

I can be sobbing in front of you with a broken heart and I’ll still crack a joke…because life is laconic, because I deserve to be joyous, jubilant, ecstatic, because laughing makes me go on and brightens up whatever dim light has stayed in my soul.

Try to dim my spirit and it will get lots of bright light instead, try to dim my eyes and they will see beyond the three dimensions our brain is boxed in.

Mercedes Benz Encrusted with Gold and Diamonds

LET’S GO TO DUBAI!

Mercedes Benz Encrusted with Gold and Diamonds 14

2018 World most expensive $48 million Diamond encrusted Mercedes SL600 Car and 300,000 gold shadow crystal pieces now being displayed in Dubai.
Custom cars are status symbols, and in Dubai the competition is intense. Around 2.2 million people inhabit the city, of which some 26,000 are millionaires or billionaires. This means one in every hundred people in Dubai is sitting pretty on a fortune, and, essentially, being filthy rich isn’t that big of a deal. So, the rich and infamous have to get creative with their cars, in a game of constant one-upmanship.
