Only if I knew

The challenge Cage-fighting wasn’t a publicly sanctioned event; a fact which increased its popularity among certain demographics. As with all human enterprises there were rules.

Reena’s Exploration Challenge # 104

A thousand centuries …. by Sadje

Keep it alive


My choice;


A thousand centuries have passed

Yet we are nowhere near finding our humanity

We will ostracize our own people

Because their skin is a different color

Shunning them because of their

Language, dress or the beliefs they follow

We are even worse than animals

Who harm other only when they have to survive

The humans take up arms just because they can

And we breed animosity without reason

We harbor grudges which are born out of spite

How many centuries will go by

Before we become humans, kind and gracious

What will convert us into peace loving race

Instead of the civilized barbarians we are?

A notice is circulated, re-emphasizing that politics and religion not be discussed in classrooms. Classrooms? There is a huge field out there, where I influence students. I’m their fave, friendly mentor. The administration has no clue about my …

Reena’s Rules:



Here’s a rather long paragraph by Jiddu Krishnamurthy…See web page for the paragraph.


I was 12 years old and excited. So excited I couldn’t sleep. Tomorrow I was going on an aeroplane. It was a small plane, and I sat next to the pilot. There were no more passengers. It couldn’t hold anymore. This was a lot of excitement for a 12-year-old boy.


I chose the combo of 3, 6, 9 which was words sat, aeroplane and the.
