After such busy day at work beavering away like Florence Nightingale; Working from diabetes clinic to full on practice nursing bits such as leg ulcers, ear syringing, wounds, smears…should I continue?.. Perhaps not. So I came home and had the luxury to actually sit down in my lovely new living room and watch a bit of Television.
As I flicked between BBC1 and channel 4 to catch a bit of news, I soon realised that it was all gloom and doom around our beautiful world. I was completely overwhelmed with emotions by the amount of violence and complete ignorance of human life happening around us.
Having sat there already frozen with anger over Mali, then Syria came on with pictures of women like myself struggling to survive and unsure what tomorrow would bring for their children. As if that was not enough, the story of the brutal massacre of South African Miners came on with horrific video evidence of these men being shot at for striking. At that point, with tears dropping down on my face, I took to twitter and ranted on rather politely asking humans to be humans and not animals.
I am not sure if anyone listened to my Twitter rant but the niggling question on my mind was, ‘HAS THE WORLD GONE MAD?’ where is our compassion, our intelligence, our conscience as humans and our freedom, what has happened to us?
