A Grim Week


Yesterday flags were flying at half-mast in empathy for the tragedy in Nice.  Last night many were killed in a failed coup in Turkey and last week hundreds were killed in a suicide bomb in Baghdad.

We are living in difficult times with no clear way out of this mess.  Violence and marginalising groups is not working, can we try something else please.  We need a true international peace maker to step up for the job.

We are living in uncertain times.
My thoughts are with all those caught up in the many conflicts we seem to be facing.

All the best Jan

I don't understand the world at all at the moment.

These times seem crazy! The world needs to work together to find a solution.

It seems more and more that things are getting worse. Excellent shot- the flag is flying half mast on Parliament Hill as well today.

Wow, I couldn't agree more. Instead the marginalizing continues and the divisiveness grows.

Ste and I were talking about this last night. I think we're going to get a lot more divided before we start going the other way. Great photo.
