I will be posting in this new header from time to time I have created called Friday Facts.. But in it I want to bring awareness to particular facts that have touched me in some way. And these stories could touch our Hearts by making us Smile, Laugh or Cry…. I hope there will be more smiles than tears.. But sometimes I just can not sit by and do nothing. So I am adding my thoughts which I hope will also maybe just make those who happen upon my pages to ‘Think’! a little deeper as to the plight of others around our world as we venture from our own bubbles to view the world in a different Light.
Today I read several stories on WP and in my email box which deserve some attention. First I signed yet another petition, this one I had no trouble in signing is this ~

If our Politicians spent as much Money, Time and effort directing it to HELP the world instead of Destroying it, then we could indeed Help stop the suffering of millions of people around our world.. So please listen to the lyrics of this Song entitled Masters of War
On the 17 and 18th June, is to be held the G8 summit at Enniskillen, County Fermanagh,Northern Island at the Lough Erne golf resort.
Among other things the International leaders will be discussing World Poverty, a fact is that around One in eight people in the world will go to bed hungry tonight. That’s 870 million people.
There are so many things I could say about what I think about a group of Leaders who effectively are not in touch with the REAL World’s problems .In fact I will lead you to a Blog which has far more skill at informing you in detail over at Learning from Dogs with Pauls post entitled G8 Madness .
