Ruki: #the9thatmademewhoIam

so, I tried choosing these on the basis of the sweet-sour memory I have of that time when I was on my way home from school, I didn’t open my umbrella and while standing in the pouring rain I ended up having a flaring look of longing in my face when I thought about becoming a leading lyricist. It was the time I started to become aware of the fact that it wasn’t just music but an outlook on the world.

I’m sure you guys had an experience like that too, right?

18 cities in Pennsylvania reported higher levels of lead exposure than Flint

The rate of lead exposure in Pennsylvania is incredibly alarming. Nearly 10 percent of the more than 140,000 kids tested had levels of 5 or more micrograms per deciliter of lead in the blood (5 µg/dL) — this is the threshold the government uses to identify children with dangerously elevated blood lead levels. 

In comparison, New York and Chicago are lead poisoning success stories — but some areas still fare better than others. Learn more about lead exposure in other American cities. 

By His wounds we are healed. Isaiah 53:5
Jesus’ blood was shed for the salvation of our spirits, His body was broken for the healing of our bodies. His body suffered and was broken for us in a number of ways—the crown of thorns, the scourging, the nail and spear wounds—so that through this He could heal His children.
Do you believe that Jesus suffered for you, not only for your salvation but also for the healing of your body? If so, you can claim the miraculous power of God’s healing.

Dearest Grace,

You don’t know me. I don’t know you. But here are ten things that are true. I hope they make you feel like you’ve connected with yet another person tonight.

1) The words “I love you” always make me feel like I’m being cut open. They ache.

2) I’m afraid of needles.

3) My G will never read this. I’m not sure if this is a blessing or a curse.

4) The moment I saw your letter, I was worried about you. Not because you said anything particularly worrisome, but because I worry about people. Worry might be what my blood is made of.

5) I have read hundreds of books, but I can still tell you exactly where I was when I first read some of my favorites.

6) When I feel lonely, I make things. Food. Crafts. It makes me feel connected to the people I make them for.

7) It’s nearly midnight, I have work in the morning, and I can’t find it in me to care overmuch.

8) Peanut sushi is a godsend.

9) I’m currently under three blankets and still cold.

10) I hope you are well, and feel surrounded by new people through the new letters you are seeing.

Yours in the strange anonymity of the internet,


I was waiting for my sister outside the hospital and I was a little upset, tearing up. Opposite to me, seated in a taxi, there was an aged black couple. The woman got out of the taxi and walked over to me and asked me why I’m crying.
I didn’t say anything partly because I didn’t know why and partly because I was afraid I would cry more if I tried to articulate it. Then she asked me if I believe in God, and I nodded my head. Then she asked if I prayed, and I nodded my head. And then she said “Leave things to the big man, darling. He’s going to look out for you. I got 5 blood clots in my lungs and a stroke, I’m still here. Pray to your big man.”

Such a humbling incident.
