About the Book – Mind Platter
Mind Platter is a compilation of reflections on life through the eyes of an educator, student and human who experienced most of life in silence. It is written in the words of a person who came from Lebanon to Canada at the age of sixteen and experienced what it was like to have fate push you to a place where you don’t belong. It is written in the voice of every person who ever felt unheard, mistreated, misjudged or unseen.
The book contains about 200 one-page entries, composed on different topics that we face in everyday lives such as hurt, love, friendship, respect motivation, integrity, honesty, power and more.
My brother randomly brought books for me to read, pretty much once in a month. When I was looking through some books that he bought, my eyes caught Mind Platter at that moment. So, I went on to read the book and found that Mind Platter is not about the words that are in it but about what we make of them.
This motivational book does not belong to me, it belongs to everyone out there who are struggling. I would definitely recommend reading this book, and I hope this book gives a voice to those who need one, be a crying shoulder for those who need someone to listen. Inspire those around you and let them know they are special.
