A Wish for The Children of Gaza
The full moon rises above Bealtaine Cottage.
Last night there was a new moon, somewhere in the sky.
Often times I watch the moon and think of all those it shines upon.
Many dark nights, when the stars fill the sky with their own light show and shooting stars leave a momentary arch in the night sky, I make a wish.
In the cold November air of a Sunday night in the west of Ireland, I made a wish, a heartfelt wish, for The Children of Gaza.
It was quite a simple wish too.
There was nothing of Christmas, Santa or presents galore.
Nothing to do with Disney, or mince pies, or turkey.
It was simply this…
That somewhere here in the western world, there will be one human being, one hero, one person of compassion and integrity, a leader, who will stand up for what is right.
One brave person and true… for there is one, at least…
Just one, who will say, “No more!”
One who will stand in front of the Children of Gaza and say…”You shall not pass…not on my watch!”
The days when one associated a political leader with integrity and justice are over.
Their mandate appears to be greed and psychopathy.
One can still wish.
Last night I made a wish…
A candle burns.
Amen to that
Thank you Colx for continuing to remind us of things that are so important. Every night when feeding the sheep I stand in the dark starlit skies and think how lucky I am. Tonight and every night till the fighting ends I will make that wish for the children of Gaza..

This is the same wish i made last night
Hello Colette, this simple genuine wish brought tears to my eyes! What if many many people wished the same thing. Never underestimate the power of thought. I wish the same thing! And hope with all my heart it will come true.
