The World Is A Rainbow

I have no words to express my sorrow at the traumatic events our country is experiencing.

It pains me to see so much suffering among our black brothers and sisters. As a former inner city teacher, I witnessed a very small portion of the struggles minorities experience.

Here’s a quote from one of my favorite songs that my kids and I sang. It always gave me hope for a better tomorrow. When my students sang it together, all their beautiful voices gave me chills.

“The world is a rainbow that’s filled with many colors. Yellow, black, and white and brown, you see them all around.

The world is a rainbow with many kinds of people. It takes all kinds of people to make the world go round.

Now you be you and I’ll be me, that’s the way we were meant to be. But the world is a mixing cup, just look what happens when you stir it up.

The world is a rainbow with many kinds of people and when we work together it’s such a sight to see.

The world is beautiful when we live in harmony.” -Greg and Steve, Volume 2

I live with my loving husband, two children and dog in Philadelphia, PA. I discovered my passion for writing in second grade when I had to write a book report for school. I was so excited to write the report, until my mother told me that I had to write about someone else's book and not my own story. I became indignant and decided that once I finished the book report I would most certainly write my own original story. I have been writing ever since! My self-published book Chris Kringle's Cops was a Finalist in The Reader's Favorite Book Contest for 2016. I am so happy to share this story with you.  My picture book Kamyla Chung and the Creepy Crawlies was given a 5 Star rating by Reader's Favorite Book Reviews in 2017.
