Remember

15th April 2010 marks the 21st anniversary of the Hillsborough Disaster in which 96 Liverpool supporters were killed and 750 were injured.

On this day also, more than 1,500 people died in the freezing Atlantic when the "unsinkable" vessel RMS Titanic hit an iceberg in 1912. Out of a total of 2,223 people aboard the Titanic only 706 survived the disaster and 1,517 perished.

Memorial Day

Photobucket



Yesterday was Holocaust Memorial Day, the international day of remembrance for the victims of the Holocaust and of subsequent genocides. It is on the anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz-Birkenau by Soviet soldiers on 27th January 1945 that Holocaust Memorial Day is commemorated, to take time to reflect and remember the victims of Nazi persecution and murder, and those killed in subsequent genocides in Cambodia, Rwanda, Bosnia and Darfur.

It is important that we never forget these terrible crimes and never allow them to happen again.

Also, all my thoughts and prayers go out to the victims of the devastating Haiti earthquake. I hope that aid and relief continue to find its way to them and that the World continues to pull to together to assist and rebuild those devastated lives. I know I wish there was more I could do.

(ps. Sorry for the rather gloomy post lol)

Happy New Year

*stars singing Auld Lang Syne*

I hope that this year may be full of luck and happiness, good fortune and laughter and may all your dreams come true. May old grievances be set aside and past mistakes be forgiven. Let all the sorrow and grief that brought heartache and pain, be left in the old year and the new be looked to with positive eyes. May future bring you nothing but good health, joy and light and fill your heart with the warmth of a fresh start. Ring in the new year with good things in mind.

Hopefully this year will provide better luck- mind you I did accidentally break a mirror last year and then accidently broke the broken piece of mirror, so I think I’m doubly damned eeeps. Anywho, I hope the fortune Gods are on my side this year and hopefully the luck will kick in sooner rather than later and affect my whole family and friends (seriously better bring them better luck or I swear I shall come and find you fortune Gods and drag that luck out of you and don’t think I won’t XDD). So farewell 2009 and bring it on 2010, I'm ready for you XDD

I wish you all a fantastic New Year.

Alright I feel a little guilty for this very late Christmassy post *hides* ay, but maybe that seasonal goodwill won’t have worn off just yet, or at least the drink teehee still got three hours to go!

Anywho, I wish you all a very Merry Christmas! I hope the peace and joy of the season gladdens your heart and fills it mirth that’ll remain throughout the new year. I wish that your heart be as full as your bellies and be lightened by the day. Wassail and may you be filled with happiness and hope for many months to come!

Have a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year
