It is not common for me to post at this time, as it is quite late here in London. But I have something on my mind. It is with a heavy heart that I write this.
Some of you may have heard about what happened in my beloved London today. (If you want to read about it, click here).
(I wrote on Facebook): ‘My heart goes out to the families of the deceased, and may those who were injured recover swiftly’.
For the past few hours, I have been hearing search helicopters, as there was a crowd of police and a ‘lock down’ at Kennington Tube Station. (Click here to view).
For those who follow my son’s blog, it was only Friday (17.03.17 – 5 days ago) that I posted it was a glorious day, so we went to Kennington park (see image from his blog below).
Whilst I do not live in Kennington, this is just too close to home.
I want to swear. I want to cry. I want to hide forever. I want to shout. I want to scream.
But most of all, I want World Peace.
I can’t take this any more. As I listen to the helicopter circulating, I look at my innocent son, worried about his future. And the thing is nowhere is safe as this bulls**t is happening everywhere.
It’s not just London; I think this way about every single tragic event I read about all over the world.
This beautiful world we live in, but humans choose to self-destruct.
I’m drawing to a close now, as I am finding it difficult to type through the tears, pain and sorrow. (Please accept my apologies in advance for any typos). I just want to ‘say’ one last thing.
I pray every single night. Sometimes, I simply thank Him for my blessings, because I feel guilty for asking for too much. More often than not though, my prayers are long. I even pray for the same things when I go to Mass Friday mornings. At times, some of the things I pray for change. But one thing does not…
I pray for God to help mankind. And I’ll never stop praying for that.
Stay safe. Stay well.
Good night folks.
