I thought the story about the kidnapping of the 5 year old boy Sahil Saeed showed both the worst of humanity but also the best.
The worst of course is that people can snatch a young boy putting him through goodness knows what trauma. They deserve to get the book thrown at them.
On the other hand the way his local community rallied round and the cooperation of the various police forces showed just how much people cared.
The extended family and local community sold gold jewellery, family heirlooms etc to raise the ransom. That shows true kindness and concern for others.
Then we saw the police forces of Pakistan, U.K. France and Spain all cooperating to ensure that the kidnappers were brought to book.
I continued writing articles about internet marketing this week. Helps me focus and hopefully helps others.
Hana my lovely Czech daughter in law sent me some prezzies. Very thoughtful of her. I must go and visit them in Prague again shortly.
Thought for today: Most people are basically kind and care for others. We just seem to hear all about the bad things whereas most of the daily good happenings seem to be ignored by the media.
Joke for today:- A waiter brings a man the steak he ordered but is pressing the steak to the plate with his thumb. That is very unhygienic complains the man. It will be more unhygienic if I drop it on the floor again replies the waiter.
