Grenfell Tower tragedy

 

In the worst residential housing fire in living memory, Grenfell Tower, an apartment block in Kensington, London, was inundated with fire a few days ago. Already 17 people have lost their lives, and an entire community has rallied around to help those who have lost loved ones, homes and everything they have ever known.

Gifville and myself salutes the firefighters, emergency services, and community members who faced tragedy and death to rescue and aid Grenfell Tower residents. This shows how London always pulls together in the darkest hours.

If you wish to donate to those affected, please search “Grenfell Tower charity appeal” or similar in your web browser to find out ways you can help.

Pray for London – 03.06.2017

 

As you may well be aware, there was a terrorist attack last night in the Borough area. Seven people have been killed and dozens injured. We are living in a dark age now, and we should overcome differences of religion, race, political stance, whatever, and pull together in one common theme – humanity.

“More mindless atrocities caused by pathetic oxygen thieves (and that’s putting it kindly). Us Londoners are a tough lot, and we will not be cowed by those who are demons in human disguise. We’ll always be strong, united and courageous in the face of terror. Long live London, long live humanity” (my own words)

The holy and the unholy – love in strange places

 

Five days ago, US president Donald Trump met with Pope Francis. While they spent much time discussing things like climate change, it seems that the Donald wanted to smooth things over with the leader of the world’s Catholics, after labelling the pope ‘disgraceful’ when the religious leader criticised Trump’s determination to ‘build the wall’. Francis was not amused by Donald’s touchy-feely gesture. So I guess it’s not just Melania then.
