Spark and Awww on Mars


McGuffy’s who was hosting the Sparks is on hiatus.  She says “I truly do believe we are meant to be lights in this world. If we allow our light to shine, we can see where we are going. It is then that we can begin to truly see each other clearly. There is hope. Together, we can light up the entire world!
