A Gift for Life-Join Me In The Song of Sahel

I found reading your post on the Sahel to be brilliant. I will reblog this post so even more people who are interested in the Sahel can check out and read your post and blog. After reading your post I find I am extremely impressed with how magnificent your post is and how informative. This will help a great many people to develop a further understanding of what is happening in the Sahel. I learned more specifics myself which were helpful and I thought I did my research. It is a pleasure to meet you this way. Here’s to the success of the Song of Sahel and the helping of the children and their families and all the people in the Sahel. ~the secret keeper~

Song Of Sahel is unique as it is not merely poetry and prose but will include paintings, artwork, music and photography along with poetry and prose.

      It is also an Arabic word meaning “border” and it is also defined as a cultivated variety of potato.

      Hope that is what you were looking for.

      Have not forgotten about your son’s poems. It has been rather crazy lately but I keep him forefront in mind. So if you remain patient I will evenually be writing to you.


    • It is a great project working toward helping out the children and families in The Sahel. The Song of Sahel Anthology will send all of its proceeds toward helping them out in the Sahel. Helping to feed the children to bring them back to their health and into saving the children’s lived. Thank you for your interest.
