Never Going To Forget Them
Gareth's Photo Of Wales
Most days I write about my life, about being extremely disabled with Primary Progressive MS.
However despite wanting and needing to post about my situation, I do also need to post about other things too.
Otherwise I would not be able to be me, engaged with the world not just focussing on my situation and getting depressed because all I can see and feel is my own pain.
Life and my life is so much more than just this shitty disease, I can not and do not want to only focus on that aspect of my life even if it dominants our lives Richie’s and mine.
Watching the film about The Forgotten Children of Zimbabwe was very upsetting, sitting here crying made me realise that despite everything I am still better off than the people in Zimbabwe.
I had to write about it yesterday, somehow writing helped me to work through all the emotions I had felt when seeing those lovely children suffering.
So much suffering, bad enough that incurable diseases offer no perspective of improvement but for so much suffering to be inflicted because of power is revolting.
All that suffering so that one man can stay in power, a man who does not care how many lives get destroyed in the process.
In 2003 Mugabe said:
‘’This Hitler has only one objective: justice for his people, sovereignty for his people, recognition of the independence of his people and their rights over their resources… If that is Hitler, then let me be a Hitler tenfold."
Richie mentioned Mugabe had said he wanted to be like Hitler so I looked on the Internet and found the quote on this blog:
The film about The Forgotten Children of Zimbabwe was very upsetting, seeing people living like that with no hope was horrible.
Their lives do not matter to Mugabe who has thrown them away as if they were rubbish.
The children in the film all had great potential but unless things change soon they will also be thrown away.
Really hope that Mugabe dies soon so that those people can live, can have a future.
Right now he is killing thousands by starvation, others he has murdered and he has his security services watching everything people do.
I won't be able to forget this film and Obert, Grace and Michelle or Esther nor do I want to forget them ever.
