Thanks for dropping in.
Like so many of you, I woke up to the shocking news
that there had been an attack on a nightclub in Orlando.
During the day, horrendous details started rolling in;
the number of victims climbed and climbed and climbed.
Until we reach a verdict: 50 dead. 53 injured.
I am so so sorry for the poor people, families and friends
whose lives have just been destroyed.
My heart goes out to ALL those affected by this horrific act.
Don’t know what else to say or think.
It is way beyond my comprehension.
Bloody guns. That’s what I think.
Bloody mental Gun Laws. That’s what I think.
Time to take a closer look at the 2nd Amendment America!
I know. This is a craft blog.
I really do know that.
But what kind of a person would I be,
if I just popped on here this evening
and made a pretty card with flowers and trees?
Both kids live in the States.
One in New York, one in San Francisco.
They both go to nightclubs, and they both have gay friends.
This afternoon Gracie called, most distraught,
because of the Orlando events.
“Come home, Grace,” I said, “ just come home.”
“Thinking about it Mum”, she said.
While we were talking, the sirens were going off in her background. She didn’t even register them.
Blackbirds singing in my parents’ garden Vs sirens in New York.
I know where I would rather be today. And I was.
But now the eye for an eye, tooth for a tooth will start all over again.
Sorry to offload here.
But my oh my. Where will it all end?
No answer required.
It’s a wicked world we live in, for sure.
I have to go and get some positivity in my heart.
Go for a walk.
