Silence. Forgiveness. Grace. This is what we learn: Be meek, be kind, be silent. Accept abuse. Accept pain. Stay silent. But silence, forgiveness, grace cannot always save us When silence covers up abuse, forgiveness prolongs pain, and grace enables an abuser, we must change what we have learned. No more silence. No more tolerating abuse for empty values. No more silence.  © Shenita Etwaroo

I am interested in Biblical eschatology, and Christianity in general. I also maintain an interest in social and political issues, and current affairs. Also, I would like to network with like minded people who share the same views I have.

I also had a job as a motion picture still photographer I have created two kinds of images. The first one the making of the movie and the second Stills includes close-ups of the actors and crew, wide shots of the crew shooting the action, this work ran side by side with my movie work. . The movie set photographer is one of the unsung heroes of a motion picture camera team. It’s the still photographer’s job to capture on-set images that document the production that will later be used to promote the film. Lest you think it’s a glamorous job where you hang out and drink coffee withMichael Curtiz and go on a date with Ann Blyth (Annie)
