'We must recognise that the suffering of one person or one nation is the suffering of humanity.'
His Holiness the Dalai lama
I am a very spiritual person. I am a very political person. I have opinions and thoughts about everything that affects me, my family, my country and the world. I vowed when I started my blog, I would not indulge my myself and pass my thoughts or opinions onto others without being asked.
....after the shocking and devastating events in Japan on Friday, I like most people found myself absorbed in nothing but the news. At many times I cried as feelings of helplessness and powerlessness swept over me, and I just could not believe the terrible images I was seeing.
My heart, my thoughts and sincerest wishes go out to the Japanese nation at this time.
Recent weeks have also seen global events unsettling the world as we are forced to face powerful images of bloodshed and fighting in the Middle East. When governments and armed forces turn against their own people as they try to fight for liberty, freedom and equality, something is wrong. For the Libyan people caught in unrest and civil war - I hope they find the strength and courage to do whats right for them and that the situation can be resolved without further bloodshed.
I needed to express from the heart today, as being part of the blogging community I know that whilst this is fun, none of us are detached from the real world.
Have a great day, and take care.
