Third-World McDonald's

Just seems very wrong to me ..
But best describes Rich World’s attitude to Poor World…:

“how can we make money from them?”

Proms in the Park - Glasgow Fireworks

YouTube - Proms in the Park - Glasgow Fireworks

Have probably posted this everywhere I exist on "Intertubes", so apologies if you've seen it already ...

Otherwise, Here it is on my blog!! :0)

Was a most excellent night, (mostly)... (it was Glasgow on a Saturday Night remember!) Loved spending time with brothers & mum.
But especially with my, not so little, daughter, without any of her brothers, disturbing her "stand up act" (she has fab sense of humour & had us laughing at her comments & observations :-) )

Good Times

Thought 2009/11: May God Bless You With Discomfort

This prayer is, apparently from a Franciscan Benediction:

May God bless you with discomfort at easy answers, half truths, and superficial relationships, so that you may live deep within your heart.

May God bless you with anger at injustice, oppression, and exploitation of people, so that you may work for justice, freedom and peace.

May God bless you with tears to shed for those who suffer from pain, rejection, starvation, and war, so that you may reach out your hand to comfort them and to turn their pain in to joy.

And may God bless you with enough foolishness to believe that you can make a difference in this world, so that you can do what others claim cannot be done.

Saw it online (as most things I do) at an excellent website, I've just recently saved to my Google Reader.

It has made be think - but how do you become empowered or even empower others , to act on these words?

For me, for now, I got to pray this one out for a while...

Not just for 'you' but for 'me' too...

"May God bless you & I with discomfort... May God bless all of us with discomfort..."
