Keep Right

 

 

Juan Perez, 16 years old was declared dead on arrival in the Emergency Room of Philippine General Hospital, 10 in the morning, August 29, 2012.

Juan fell on the lobby of second floor head first after he had a collision with Pedro Rodriguez, his schoolmate in I am the Way, the Truth and the Life School (IWTLS).

Pedro told the police that he was going upstairs to the library in the third floor of the building when Juan, walking fast, came in his way.

Pedro admitted that he was walking on the wrong side of the stairs  so he decided to take the right side.  However, Juan took the same side and they collided.

The attending doctor said that Juan had trauma in his head and died of internal hemorrhage.

Parents grieved of their son’s sudden death.  They said that Juan was a candidate for valedictory honors.  “He was kind and industrious.  He was the only hope of the family.  He was the role model for his five younger siblings.”

It was also found out that before the accident, Juan stayed inside the library to prepare for the final exam in Mathematics.  The librarian of IWTLS  told the police that when the bell rang, Juan hurriedly get out of the library and what she heard afterwards was the loud screaming of students asking for help.

The Use and Disuse of Apostrophe

The Use and Disuse of Apostrophe

Lyla Quillmark

The email from a member of the technical support team began:

“Hi Lady’s,
Now your both up and running…”

Sorry, but I’m afraid you lost me at “Lady’s”.

I admit it. I’m a pedant. Grammar, spelling, punctuation: they all irritate me when incorrect. I was taught well by my mother when I was a child, and I grew up with the overwhelming urge to correct people; to right the writing wrongs of society and enlighten my social inferiors to their grammatical sins. I have been known to send follow-up emails to correct shameful errors that somehow slipped through my editing (just to prove to any eagle-eyed readers that I do indeed understand correct usage), and delete then re-post Facebook status updates that were inadvertently sent off into the ether with – oh, horror! – a mistake!!

Oh, yes. Facebook. The place where the illiterate and the sloppy share with the world…

Flood

Flood

Jars of Clay

Rain rain on my face
It hasn’t stopped
Raining for days
My world is a flood
Slowly I become
One with the mud

[Chorus]
But if I can’t swim after 40 days
And my mind is crushed
By the crashing waves
Lift me up so high
That I cannot fall
Lift me up
Lift me up when I’m falling
Lift me up I’m weak and I’m dying
Lift me up I need you to hold me
Lift me up and keep me from drowning again

Down pour on my soul
Splashing in the ocean
I’m losing control
Dark sky all around
Can’t feel my feet
Touching the ground

[Chorus]

Calm the storms that drench my eyes
And dry the streams still flowing
Casting down all waves of sin

And guilt that overthrow me
[Chorus]

Lift me up, when I’m falling
Lift me up, I’m weak and I’m dying
Lift me up, I need you to hold me
Lift me up, and keep me from drowning again
