In A Child's Eyes

Are visions we leave them.

They see the past we create for them.


And the life we build with them.IMG_0102

If we show them beauty.

They will see beauty.IMG_0209

If we show them love.

They will see love.

If we show them compassion

They will see compassion.IMG_0210

If we paint our world for their eyes to see-


And behave in ways-

We hope for them to witness-


To emulate-


We have created vision.IMG_0306

And lasting memories.IMG_0327

In these eyes.

About The Persecution of Mildred Dunlap

The year 1895 was filled with memorable historical events: the Dreyfus Affair divided France; Booker T. Washington gave his Atlanta address; Richard Olney, United States Secretary of State, expanded the effects of the Monroe Doctrine in settling a boundary dispute between the United Kingdom and Venezuela; and Oscar Wilde was tried and convicted for "gross indecency" under Britian's recently passed law that made sex between males a criminal offense. When the news of Wilde's conviction went out over telegraphs worldwide, it threw a small Nevada town into chaos. This is the story of what happened when the lives of its citizens were impacted by the news of Oscar Wildes' imprisonment. It is chronicle of hatred and prejudice with all its unintended and devastating consequences, and how love and friendship bring strength and healing. Paulette Mahurin, the author, is a Nurse Practitioner who lives in Ojai, California with her husband Terry and their two dogs--- Max and Bella. She practices women's health in a rural clinic and writes in her spare time. All profits from her book are going to animal rescue, Santa Paula Animal Shelter, the first and only no-kill shelter in Ventura County, CA, where she lives. (see links below on Ventura County Star Article & Shelter) To find out more please go the The Persecution of Mildred Dunlap on facebook or Amazon or e-mail us at the gavatar addresses. Thank you.

    Paulette, here is my message to The Chatter box. So wonderful!

    This is absolutely fantabulous… I am very, very impressed. As Paulette said, it speaks for itself. Though this generation is rather late, what a world formula for social educational reform, for future generations. It must start now for a better chance, for all to come!

    Thank you for such a beautiful idea and post. You are flowers to our eyes and music to our ears, and one must get people talking about your brilliant message.

    I know people say you shouldn’t judge a book by its cover, but I wouldn’t be where I am today if I didn’t do exactly that. I have judged plenty of people based on their eyes and smiles…it just works. Very good post because eyes are very telling of one’s personality 🙂
