how are you DOING today? I hope you are having a great day wherever it is that you are living in our world! 

My name is Marilyn and I live in the United States of America, which is a wonderful place to live and I am VERY glad to be able to live here.

Isn't the Internet a wonderful place? I think that it is and I am so happy that you have decided to visit my site! 

Ok, well now I have a question to ask you if you don't mind and this is what it is...do you know what the words NON-VIOLENT mean? well just in case you do not, then please let me explain them to you...NON-VIOLENT means that we all try our best to live together without hurting any people or any animals that share this planet WITH us. I think you understand what I am trying to say. 

When I use the word hurt, what I am TALKING about here is that we never, EVER need to use our hands, feet or mouths to hit, scratch, kick or bite another living thing and we never, EVER need to use ANY kind of weapon that can hurt or kill another living thing such as when someone uses a gun or any other type of weapon against any person or animal to get them to do what we would like them to do. 

One more VERY IMPORTANT thing that we must remember is that we should never, EVER call anybody bad names or make them feel bad about themselves just because they may not LOOK like you do or THINK like you do, ok?  This is a big, beautiful world and what makes it beautiful is the fact that we are all different, just like the colors in a rainbow or in a box of crayons. Besides...it would not be as interesting or fun if everybody looked and sounded the same. If you live your life this way, I promise you that you will definitely make yourselves as well as everybody else around you much happier people! 

Hey do you know what? I think you already knew all of this, but I just wanted to make sure! 

WOW...wouldn't it be WONDERFUL if we could just talk to each other and try to be friends instead of fighting with each other and hurting each other?  Maybe if we ALL try to do this, there would be no more wars in our world!!! 

And now as a way of my thanking you for coming to visit me, I would like you to have some fun and perhaps even learn something , so here are some links for you to click on that I hope you will enjoy!
