Why I Donated To ‘War Child’.

A notification popped up last week on Facebook, asking me if I had seen her post.

It was the very first post I saw that evening as I logged in, already I was smiling.

No one can resist a pair of handmade bootees… especially if they are in the style of a Converse pair.

I let it be known that I was rather tempted to order a pair by her own hands.

As I enquired how to pay for her time, materials etc, “Please donate to a charity.” she replied.

“What a wonderful woman” were my thoughts.

I felt it would be rude to choose a charity of my own, so asked her, what her preferences were.

Out of the three given by Suzanne, I picked ‘War Child.” For they had managed to stop me in my tracks and rendered me speechless.

I sadly, had not heard of them before then and wished, they could know the real reason why I had donated to them.

All due to this wonderful and generous woman, Suzanne Miller, who made these cherished booties for my baby daughter.

Thank YOU, ever so.

I do not think I have ever said this before to anyone but, God bless you Suzanne. ☺️

Please, if you can, donate to War child for they are a fantastic charity and to quote a friend, “It’s a shame the circumstances exist for it to be necessary. 😢 ”

How Argan Oil Is Made.

This is an Argan tree.

The goats eat the leaves and the fruit then they (the people) pick out the fruit from the goats’ poo and make oil with it. Argan oil. They then make expensive skin products with it, to go on posh people’s skin.

The humble goat has a purpose. 😀

A (Relay) Translation.

A brief (relay) translation of the Arabic in this video which featured a man who happens to be deaf, from last night’s terror attack in Finsbury Park.

The man reporting to the arabic tv station, introduced thé man as being deaf and was involved in the incident but escaped harm. Second man said possibly 3 dead. 3 rd man said he is not happy that it was reported as an attack rather than a terrorist attack, he added by saying we only have God to protect us.

The deaf man does however say there is one dead, for sure. He describes how the van only brushed his leg and escaped more harm which was intended.

Enough Is Enough.

It does not help when you get idiots like Piers Morgan saying on TV that the Muslim community does not do enough.

Not only that but when the news lie, this video proves that the police were not on the scene within one minute as our Prime Minister is trying to make us believe.

This is a harrowing recording of the aftermath by my friend who was there at Finsbury Park Mosque, the van had just nudged his shoulder but injured his friend as well as deliberately mowing down others in his path.

A criminal act is a criminal act. The background of the individual is irrelevant but when someone happens to be of a faith, it’s focused so much more on their faith. On another post a friend said this was a terror attack. Someone else tried to say that it is just a white man. No, it’s a terror attack, a terrorist can be anyone regardless of background.

A quote from an interview on BBC news “He is effectively working for ISIS because that’s what they want.” (Division)

Who says we are against each other? ☺️ It’s only those who allow themselves to feel the division and be divided through evil that feel as if they are. If they had an ounce of wisdom, they’d see past their biased anger and not permit it to dictate them or their actions. Easier said than done perhaps, for some. This is why some managed to stay calm and collected last night in the assailant’s face. Admirable really.

It is one event after another these days and it is draining on us all, we all need some peace.

Enough is enough.

Grenfell Tower.

I visited the site of Grenfell Tower yesterday since my cousin was there and fortunately, managed to get out. She thought Armageddon had started and watched it turn into a towering inferno. I was totally unprepared for the aftermath, the sights, smells and feelings. The precise moment I saw the burnt out shell of a residential high rise, it was smouldering still….

My breath was momentarily taken away purely by the size of it, my heart sank and my thoughts turned to all the other victims, those who perished, are missing and affected.

I experienced pleas of donations, pleas for missing beloved, hopes. Most of all, pure devastation. As I walked past mountains of kindness, I found a memorial wall. As I started to read through people’s condolences, a couple of tears started to roll down my cheeks. A volunteer from the Latymer Centre walked right up to me with her arms open and hugged me for what seemed like forever. She then asked me if I was okay, I could not speak but put my thumbs up to indicate that I was and to thank her, for her time and patience.

It is ordinary people who have come together and to the rescue of others, other than the police and fire services. Where the hell is our government?! Where is their love, their kindness?

That woman who was running for Prime Minsiter against May? She was right, May doesn’t have children so she most certainly doesn’t know who to be or how to be. Or how to feel! I’m rather embarrassed, to have Theresa May as our prime minister. Not to forget the Conservatives, for their greed.

One of the richest towns in the world decided to make a tower block, where the “lower class” live, look prettier, easier on their eyes when in fact they refurbished it into a death trap. A chimney.

Angry much?!

Yet, if it was not for the muslims observing Ramadan, more lives would have been taken. A positive, thank goodness.

My thoughts once again, return to the victims of our country, other countries, they are the ones who deserve and need our time and patience.

Yardy’s Conspiracy Theory.

“Somebody needs to explain this to me because me not understand this . How can the police tweet about the incident in London bridge and Borough market but the time of their tweet is 4.50PM? This is way before it happened. This is like a whole 5 hours before it happened. Yes, about 5 hours before it happened. See the tweet here * Points to screen* look at the tweet at 4.50PM. See my time there * Points to the time recorded on screen. How? * (Inaudable) somebody explain this one.”

Someone, somewhere (was in or) has the wrong time zone set.

Please see the original tweet by Metroplitian Police…
