Weekend Thoughts

Wow, what a weekend right? I woke up to absolute bliss this morning. After the trying week we had at work, I needed a proper break. So we promptly got ourselves dressed and then decided to go on a hike. This is something we have wanted to do but never got the chance to. After a long, long walk around the local trail, we had an easy brunch at a new little cafe I have really taken a liking to. That was my morning. Amazing right? Not even 12PM when we were done.

Then I saw the breaking news of Paris. It takes everything into retrospect, right? Here I am chilling with a cup of coffee in my hand, and here I found out about the devastating loss of innocent life. Not to mention the previous loss of life in Beirut. I saw all those posts on social media about #prayforparis and yeah, for a while it did cross my mind to post one as well. But anything I do like that seems so impersonal. Pray, that's it? then what? Why don't we help? Why don't we unite to stop this massacre and show them we are not scared to fight back?

So, how can we help? First, we can check any of the sites: French Secours Populaire, The Red Cross, The Secours Catholique-Caritas France . These organisations are currently assisting the affected. As of the moment, I have not found a place to send them provisions or for direct help, but if anyone has, please share them out.

Let's try to support those on the ground by pleading for more people to assist with the #PortOuverte. And then let's pray some more for this horror to end in all the affected areas, not just in Paris.

Anyways, I know the pictures seem so disjointed from the post that just happened, but this is what I did that morning. So, I'll see you soon?

  1. It is so sad to see what's happening in the world, everyday there's something that kills many! Why can't we all live in peace... what's stopping it... It is getting worse and worse each day and I don't know what we can do about it. War is not the key of stopping these massacre as there are many innocent people who get affected. Pray for humanity, pray for Paris!
    Your photos are beautiful!

  3. I remember seeing the story start popping up in my feed while I was at work...it really makes you stop in your tracks.
    My heart is stilled weighed heavily by such news - so much devastation in just one day!
    I wrote a similar post about it, and I'm glad to see someone else is frustrated by the #prayforparis posts. Like yes, pray, but don't stop there! Thanks for including those links as well <3
