Broken Families and Chocolate’s link to Child Slavery

By: Gabriela Yareliz 1] I found out today that Vanessa Paradis and Johnny Depp have separated. This makes me sad. It’s one of those break-my-heart moments. I guess because I come from a broken home, I know what this means for the children invovled. That is always who I think about.

The Greatest Love Story Ever Told-

By: Gabriela Yareliz So, I have a couple of things floating in my mind. Yesterday, a man called into the Delilah show (yes, I said Delilah) and he wanted to dedicate a song to his wife, Sandra, because a childhood friend of his lost his wife in a car accident. It made me so sad.Continue reading “The Greatest Love Story Ever Told-“

Love Actually

By: Gabriela Yareliz I really love this love story from Love Actually (no pun intended). It always makes me smile. Love is strange. Does it creep up on us? Are there different types of love? The immature one, the mature one, the enduring one, the tragic one, the painful one, the magical one- or is thereContinue reading “Love Actually”
