The Freedom To Determine How They Live Their Lives.

Today has been a pleasant day; I received an e-mail from Ruud from Summit asking me to phone him.

Which I did, we have an appointment on Friday so Ruud can make sitting more comfortable for me.

After Richie gave me a shower, dressed me, my lovely friend Anja came to visit, it
was lovely spending time with her.

Good to see a good friend, talking with her was great, we talked for hours, just what I needed right now.

First dinner, then a small glass of good Trinidad Vat 19 rum, to toast my success in getting the building free of pigeons.

Richie went to the garden centre for plants, he has already planted some, there is a big planter full of strawberry plants outside the bedroom window, some pretty flowers will follow.

Back in bed I watched the Dutch news; saw shocking pictures of people being fired on in peaceful demonstrations in Yemen and Syria by their armies.

I heard two men talking about the Hama massacre in 1982, Human Rights organisations think as many as 40,000 were brutally murdered.


The two escaped with their lives, one man’s mother died after being tortured by the Syrian army, they can never return as they were officially declared dead.

Very upsetting hearing this, despite many been killed, thousands of brave people were back out on the street demonstrating peacefully.   

I hope they succeed in getting rid of these tyrants and get the freedom they deserve to determine how they live their lives.
