A broken heart

A few weeks ago I visited Prestatyn beach in North Wales. I go here quite often I find it quite relaxing especially around dinner time of an evening towards sunset. There are a few people about walking the dogs on a nice walk. Its quite reflective. 

But one evening I was greeted by the sounds of something I dont hear often or at all – a grown man crying his eyes out….

I sat on the steps overlooking the beach and the sea. Behind me was the car park. I sat gazing out to sea enjoying the sunset when I heard a noise behind me which alerted me. The sound of sobbing. I turned round and seen a man sat in his car. He had his hands over his eyes. At first I thought he was rubbing his eyes. I looked back out to sea again. Then I heard sobbing again. 

I turned round to see the man crying heavy. Tears ran down his face and he wiped them away. He gazed at his phone and burst into tears again. He wiped them away but the tears fell fast. 

I paused as it was one of them moments where I didn’t know what to do. Should I go and see if he is OK?  Or is that intruding on his grief? I decided to leave him to grieve alone. Im not one for sharing troubles so I decided not to interfere. 

He sat and looked round the place and his emotions settled for a minute. He checked his phone and once again began to sob. 

What could reduce a man to such tears?  I could tell this wasn’t an argument. This man had very recently suffered a tragic loss. As he was alone I assumed he had just lost his girlfriend/wife. He wasn’t an old man I would guess in his forties. He gazed round and cried again.

I wondered was this a special place for them over the years?  Had they strolled hand in hand together here over the years down the sea front along the promenade? Had nature been cruel and brought an end to an era?  He was now alone with just memories and pictures on his phone. 

I felt sorry for him. Here is everyone happy going about their lives unaware of the heartbreak people near by must be going through. I couldn’t imagine the heart ache he must be experiencing. I sat close by I tried to smile briefly if he looked my way. He was too wrapped up in sadness and memories. 

This went on for ten minutes. He started his car engine had a quick glance along the seafront sobbed again and left. I watched him drive away. Was this a final goodbye I wondered. A chapter in his life of coming here to such a sentimental place possibly had come to an end.  His world had fell apart. 

I hoped he was alright as he drove off. He probably was returning to an empty lonely house full of sadness,  pictures and memories. I couldn’t imagine going to bed alone to a cold mattress knowing that person should be there. His world clearly had fell apart and his soul forever tortured. 

So I sit and wonder while I am happy – how many people out there have suffered the same sadness and I gave them a thought. It goes to show we must enjoy our lives while we can.  

Perhaps places we go to us are nice and simple basic places but to others it could be a magical place with such memories to them and others. Places of love and happiness and sentiment. I have special places to me that hold meaning. 

So if you have a special someone and a special place make the most of it. Tell them often you love them and enjoy your magical place together for times goes by on the blink of an eye… 

The Childs eye

Have you ever stopped and thought about the reflections in a Childs eye? 

What are we exposing children to?  What are we letting them see and not caring towards it? 

The reflections in a Childs eye we see bombs and explosions and wars how can we allow such innocent amazement to be subjected to mankinds worse terrors? 

A childs eye sees hate of man for man. The anger filled rage of humans desperate for power. The innocent hearts of children are being filled with hate and the sights of death. Should they not allowed to be innocent children? Should they not be allowed to be kept safe and grow happy and live happy? Is the Childs heart now filled with terror? 

A Childs eye sees warzones and battles and evil taking place before them. Where is the love of this world for the children to see? 

A Childs eye sees ongoing war of which they see no end. How can they have any hope for the future? How can our generations allow them to live through this? 

A Childs eye sees such anger,  hatred and violence. What must they think of the world they live in?  What must they think of the adults of this world and humanity? Why are the adults not considering the children? Why are they not thinking of the mess they make of which the children have to grow up in and sort out? 

The eyes of children are being made to hate and dislike and to feel and experience expressions and feelings that dont belong in the magical kingdom of children. 

So next time you see the reflection in a Childs eye,  hope it isn’t followed by tear drops, a fearful cry on sight of seeing humanitys evil, of seeing people die. 

They say love conquers all,  and now is the time love must conquer for the future,  the present is shrouded in evil. 

Evil like the present evil should be banished forever and children of today should be able to say one day ‘I grew up in such terror,  but for today and the future is such paradise’ and for their children and the future generations. May peace reign with such majestic grace. 

We as adults must make the future safe now and bring forward peace so the children of the future can grow without fear and hate and instead embrace the love of humanity and travel this beautiful world happily and be welcomed by everyone. 

For the kingdom of children – must become the kingdom of mankind. 

The death penalty

“If you must break the law do it to seize power,  in all other cases – observe it” – Julius Cesar. 

This is a topic which is often raised with those for it and those against.  Into the subject goes morality and ethics. Should the death penalty be allowed?  Should it be re-instated?  Is there warrant for it? 
In my own personal opinion I believe there is a warrant for it.  I often hear on the radio of murders and serial killers and horrific crimes and its very upsetting.  Often these sick crimes are rewarded with hardly any kind of a punishment.  How is prison a punishment in these days?  They get to stay safe indoors in nice enough conditions and get priviledges and some even get computers. Why are these people being given anything?  They should be made to exist in the worse of conditions. 

Once I visited Beaumaris jail on the isle of Anglesey.  This was a jail in the Victorian times and is now a tourist attraction.  As soon as I walked in I could feel the tight suffocating atmosphere. I could instantly tell suffering had took place here for any crimes.  The rooms were small and some with no windows. The inmates had to work hard just for their breakfast.  They were punished hard if stepped out of line.  How have prisons changed so much that inmates are now seen having fun and drinking and mobile phones sneaked in unnoticed.  What kind of places have prisons become where it is acceptable to be in and not too much hardship?  Where the life is OK. Prisons should be feared. They should be a place where human rights for murderers is hard to come by.  

Some will say its inhumane to execute them.  But where was their humanity and humane views when they took innocent lives?  These people are exempt from humanity.  They are not apart of it. 

They should be wiped out and took out of life so we don’t have to care for them. This will free up space in prisons with people of lesser crimes. This will save the tax payer paying to keep them and the money can be put towards a good thing instead of useless to society monsters.  

People say ‘oh killing them is an easy way out for them’ but I dont care.  I dont care about that I want them gone and no longer a threat to anyone and not allowed to live. They take up space and time and money. If I murdered someone I would expect to lose my life and why not?  

If someone had murdered someone close to me I dont see jail as justice not in the modern day.  When has society become so weak it is scared to punish such evil? What kind of society do we live in where murderers can still have their life and live it out in an OK environment protected by laws and human rights after they took a life away? 

Surely human rights shouldnt apply to these people.  They opted out when they disrespected the human rights of others. 

Recently it was on the radio of a man who killed a man in an unprovoked attack and punched him.  He died and the man who killed him got 6 years in jail.  How is 6 years justice for the victims family??  The victim got an eternal sentence.  His life was ended!  

He faces a small punishment then walks back into civilization to enjoy his life and see friends and family etc.  Whereas his. Victim is gone forever… He has murdered someone.  What if he does it again? 

I know in certain situations we must be careful incase there isn’t much evidence but one concrete evidence where is the issue with putting monsters down? Imagine if one of these people escaped.. 

Some will argue that these people can be rehabilitated and helped but for what purpose?  They can never be released and allowed back into society.  They can never be allowed a normal life.  What is the point in wasting resources on these people?  They knew what they were doing when they broke the law.  So if you cant do the time dont do the crime.  I understand rapists and thieves etc should be given second chances etc but murderers especially cold brutal murderers should be put to sleep.  Im not refering to accidental murder as in manslaughter etc because that is just unfortunate.  There are situations where you might accidentally kill someone etc and thats fair enough its unfortunate but intended murder is evil.  Child murderers are evil etc why are they allowed to continue?  The yorkshire ripper for example costs the British taxpayer alot of money a year to house him etc why bother?  He cant be free. Can the money not be put to a more useful cause?  

Society needs to be stricter on those who operate outside its core.  Outside the mainstream of society which operates nice behaviour and compassion.  Why should nice people be put at risk?  

Perhaps knowing you will die too will make murderers think twice.  Everyone knows murder is wrong.  The only regret some of these murderers have is being caught.

But we all have our own opinions on this naturally.  Mine is to keep society such as our children truly safe…

Suffering of Children

In this world there are many children suffering and alone and lost in life without parents and love. They are passed around from carers and foster familys and have no real stability or love. There are many children who live in what we once called orphanages. 

Yet there are so many people out there who have the ability to look after these children and give these children the love they need and the childhood they deserve just like we had. We was so lucky to have a nice warm home and a bed and a family who love us to be brought up in a stable environment. But think of them poor children who are not. Them who have no love, no warmth of family and not experiencing the true magic of childhood. 

Why dont the rich do anything about it? Why cant them who have spare rooms and money give a child a home? Why is there such ignorance to the suffering of children? 

Is money so important to these people that they dont care for the welfare of the suffering? Do they not wish to give someone a nice life and a home? 

I believe there should be a government scheme which encourages people to help these children and to give them a room over their heads. A scheme which financially helps families to afford this and encourage it and give people incentive to take on children who need help. Afterall are children not the future?

Governments fund student accomodations and pay for people to have university students in their homes with funds but why not fund adoption? Therefore if families are being helped to provide then more children will be given homes with families and the target can be greater achieved. More children will have stable lives. It wont just be the richest who can help but everday families can help more if they are supported to do so. 

There are children who are orphans through war! There are Children who are not wanted and there are children who are orphaned by terrible tragedies. Surely we can somehow help these children! Surely there are people with money and room to help. 

People with so much money you dont know what to do with it why dont you help? Why dont you save children? Why dont you give them a chance? For surely there is no worse sight than the look of sadness in a childs eyes. 

I know its not easy for us all to do such a commitment and not affordable for us all and doesnt fit in with our everyday lifestyles but how many people also just cant help just because of ignorance? 

Life and mentality needs to change and adapt and find a way to help children have love and family and let them achieve their potential to be the best they can be. For are these children not the future? Are these children not the ones who will dominate the world and look after us when we are older? The youth is the future! 

May the day come when all children are raised in a loving environment!

May the day come when all children can experience magical childhood!

May the day come when mankind doesnt turn a blind eye to the suffering of the children of this world!

I pray for the day the world changes. For this day the world becomes smart..
