We are still alive and we are kicking ! ! !


Tuesday 22 March, 2016 by Uncle Spike

Yet again I write with sadness at the senseless cruelty from our own species.

Brussels has today become the latest scene of mass murder, chaos, fear and anger.

Having seen month after month of atrocities waged here on Turkish soil,
we feel the pain, the shock, the fear, the anger. Be strong dear Brussels.

We are with Brussels, just as I am sure they were with us not just a few days ago.

I saw a post on Facebook today – here is an excerpt that stuck with me.

Our humanity was robbed of us today, as it was in Istanbul last week, in Ankara the week before, before that in Paris, Beirut, Kano, the Bardo National Museum in Tunisia, and so many more. Know this, those who hide deep within the darkest pools of innocent blood shed, our spirit shall never die because without love, without freedom, without respect, we are nothing. We will never accept your chains forged on the anvils of fear and we we will never accept your t/error and paranoia as substitute for freedom.

Kendell Geers




Yet again I offer simple words: May all the victims rest in peace.

    Spike it seems to be a regular and tragic routine that we wake up on this side of the world to yet one more atrocity. We stand in solidarity of wishes for peace and again our hearts with those who have suffered so much.

    Love the quote. I heard about the bombings before I left for work this morning. It is so sad. Prayers for all and their families. Hoping someday that ISIS will understand this is NOT working and quit killing innocents to try to further their cause.

  8. I also read with horrors of the events in Brussels today and Istanbul earlier this week…it seems to be a never ending chain of terrors. I do hope it will cease soon…but I am certainly not holding my breath as I might die of asphyxia before it all ends!!! (Suzanne)

    Great post and quote. It is hard to wake up to this news, then to hear the fascist running for president of the USA promote hatred and fear. He sickens me, just as I’m repulsed by all the bloodshed and loss committed in the name of a phantom truth.
