Help is needed now!

There are many people working hard to help refugees. There are countless volunteers, people donating and fund raisers working to do all they can.

Right now there are 250 people, including children stuck in Farmakosini. They have been without help for days. Help should have now arrived but they need more food, water and warmth until they can get into Leros. Help was on its way by boat. How much faster could it have arrived by air?

There are refugees, including children, stuck on the border here. Desperate for help. https://m.facebook.com/forgotten.idomeni/ 

More could be done by those without access to private planes and vast sums of money. Yet much of the work to help refugees is being done by ordinary people, of ordinary means. 

If a group of well known, infuencial, affluent people donated a fraction of their resources. If they signed petitions and encouraged others to sign and share. If this happened lives would be saved. Moreover, if it perpetuated then many lives would be saved.

I'm calling on those with influence to support refugees. Im asking those with means to help make a big difference.

Large charities do great work but many smaller groups are working hard on the ground to give refugees, victims of circumstance a chance. These groups need influential help.

Please help groups like these to help refugees.

Global citizen

I've just been reading posts on this interesting website. We are all citizens of the world.

Single

My romantic history has tended to be active. There have been long relationships and short ones. In summary, there have been very few gaps since erm about 1990.

Presently one might describe my romantic status as inactive. Inactive since January or so. For a while there, I was pretty darned unhappy about it. Then, somehow, I got a life. I stopped being defined by a relationship status and started a relationship with life.

Life can be active. In other words one can choose to actually live life and that's exactly what I'm doing. Don't get me wrong, I'd quite like to be wined and dined by an intelligent, attractive, kind, bearded fellow but it isn't pivotal. I'm not driven by the desire to have a partner. And I think I was, once upon time.

I have no real idea how id find the time for love, amongst mum daughter time, work time, me time, helping the planet time and family friend time. I could probably squeeze someone in on a Tuesday in 2020.

Isn't it strange that once you stop searching, you realise you found what you were searching for. You see I thought I was looking for a romantic partner. I wasn't. I was looking for myself. Low and behold, I found her.

Connection

There is much misinformation out there. One cannot believe all we read or hear about. Personal accounts tend to have greater truth than newspapers. And tabloid newspapers don't sell news, they sell stories.

Read between the lines. Question why someone is saying what they are saying. Some people's agendas are not innocent.

Refugees are not terrorists. Terrorists are not religious people. Anyone that deems it OK to take a life, or worse, lives, is a terrible excuse for a human. Thankfully this isnt most people. Most people just want to live their lives in peace.

The response to acts of hate, is acts of love. We can unite. We must unite. We need to stand with refugees, with Muslims, with Christians. We need to stand together across all races, religions, cultures and ages. Divisions are not the answer. Connection is.

Peace,

Angel card readings for refugees

I'm doing angel card readings to raise money for Aid for refugees. I'm determined to do all I can to help.

People may by wondering what angel card readings are. Well, they are alike tarot but more positive, affirming or guiding. I read my own cards often and find it very helpful. They lift your mood, encourage positivity, provide encouragement and promote intuition.

If anyone wants a reading for £3, let me know. All money will go to buy aid for refugees.
