Sad week in Paris but this is the time to stand together?

The Sunday Post Cartoon.

From the Sunday Post in Scotland. “Today we join a world united in its grief over the horrors in France and defiant in the face of threats to our most basic, cherished liberties.

Our front page is a message of support from us and Scotland’s most iconic cartoon character to all who value the right to freedom of expression.”

It has been a hard week especially for the French, the tragic murders have shown what a mad and crazy world we live in. I have traveled all over the World from the 70’s to the Persian Gulf where I lived for over a year and in the  years to come in Pakistan and many other countries. If we respect each other ways and cultures in the main human beings  get on well. It is a tragedy to see that the world we live in  today the hatred and loss of humanity.

It was amazing to see the millions  that marched in Paris a show of unity. I wonder what the future bring  us and how we can change the hatred we have built up?

In Scotland the freedoms we have allow us to do mainly as we want. The Mountain Rescue Teams have been busy out rescuing and there have been some lucky escapes for a few. There is the usual shouts from a few to close the hills in bad weather? This would be impossible to even carry out, we have great freedom but with it comes great responsibility. I stopped listening to the news I was getting to upset by it and have a Granddaughter who had her first birthday on the day of the shootings in Paris. What kind of world are they coming into?

Later on I saw a few photos of the Braemar, Cairngorm Mountain Rescue Team, Lochaber and the Rescue helicopters out on the weekends mountain Rescue Call outs. Brave people in all these Agencies who are risking their lives for people they do not even know.

Cairngorm MRT in action with the Sea King great Team work in wild conditions.

Cairngorm MRT in action with the Sea King great Team work in wild conditions. It gives me faith in humanity.

A very few will be aware that this is happening on our doorstep in this crazy world but a bit of faith in humanity came back to me despite “Man’s inhumanity to man”

We live in troubled times but I still have faith that good will triumph over evil.
