Never, Ever Give Up. If it hurts, you have a soul.

Manchester 22 dead

Refuge Craft in the Mediterranean 1st reports 22 dead

School bus in Syria  30 dead.

Bus with Coptic Christians 25 dead

Oregan  2 heroes dead

Mississippi 8 dead

Manilla- Botched robbery in a Casino 36 dead

Kahbul 90 dead

London 6 dead

And this does not include the injured, the scars of the survivors, the grief of the relatives and friends; the terror ground into the witnesses.

And these are the ones which have recently made the main news, they do not include the ongoing victims of wars in to name but a few- Syria, Kashmir, South Sudan, Yemen, Philippines. Our the constant seeping away of your lives in the pointless urban gang wars ( 7 kids stabbed to death in London, this year, so far)

The shock  is numbed by the feeling of helplessness and the natural wish that it would all stop.

Let us at least hang onto our Humanity , our Respect, our Tolerance and our Compassion.

When you hear or read of such a tragedy, if you have a religion offer up a prayer for the victims, if you do not take a brief pause for silent reflection. All join together, mourn then strive in your own ways to ensure the weeds of Hate and Ignorance wither. Your ways may be small, but be persistent, and together you will be part of a mighty force.

Take care one and all
