1. Introduction our Story

We originally wrote this topic in October 2019. For some reason at that time it did not feel right to publish it. The reason why we even thought of writing such a topic stems from our thoughts and feelings surrounding what happened to our Dad whilst he was an inpatient in the hospital and the complaint we are making against the hospital.

The essence of the topic was based on everything we were experiencing during the time our Dad was in the hospital, and every day since that time. We don’t ever go into detail about the complaint we are making as it is ongoing, but we are pursuing with it because our Dad meant the world to us, and his life mattered, “Elderly” lives matter. We have written elderly in quotation marks because we feel it is such an insult that once you reach a certain age you are considered “elderly” no matter your physical make up, but that is a seperate matter, one of which we are dealing with in our complaint.

With the recent incidents that are reoccurring in America, it felt right and just to publish this topic now. This is the right time to be speaking openly about this matter.

Rights, liberty and justice as an individual and human being is something that should be your civil liberty, unfortunately still in these times and day and age, the colour of your skin changes that fact immensely, this is something that happens all around the world.

In regards to the most recent situation, in honesty we (my sister and I) could not bring our self to watch the footage of what happened to George Floyd. We know it is something that we would not be able to handle. Its heart wrenching and heart-breaking.

There are no words to describe how he would have been feeling in that moment, helpless to help himself, helpless to prevent it from happening. Powerless.

There are no words to describe what his family and friends are experiencing right now. We are not members of his family, but this has touched our hearts as well as many people worldwide.

This topic covers the matters surrounding the recent events in America, and also similar matters that have occurred in the UK, it also has information on rights, justice, civil and human rights.

We appreciate this is a lengthy topic. One of the reasons is we wanted each person mentioned to have their own item and their name to be mentioned we felt that was very important. Aside from that we tried our best to combine and summarise do that it wouldn’t become an even bigger topic. We know this matter cannot be summarised or shortened in reality as it is an issue that spans fot many year’s of time. 400 years to be exact. 400 years since slavery. That is a hyperlink that can be read for more information

We have tried our best to create and share content that is most relevant to the current times being faced. It would be impossible to cover this matter as a whole as we previously memtioned this has been ongoing for many year’s. We hope we have managed to do it justice.

28. Our Final Thoughts

The recent events in America is something that sadly has been going on throughout history, before my time, before our Parents time. There have been powerful stands against this through movements such as Black Panthers and activits such as Malcolm X, Martin Luther King Jr, Rosa Parks “The First Lady of Civil Rights” who refused to give up her seat, these are just a few influential, inspirational, powerful people who stood for the rights and freedom of Black people.

what has happened with George Floyd has touched people worldwide, it has a worldwide effect that is sparking worldwide recognition and unity in protesting and speaking out in the hope that some form of change can happen. The scariest and saddist thing about George Floyd, and others before them is that these are the few incidents captured on camera, they are not the only incidents that occur on a regular basis.

Enough is enough, it is time for change, in our unified efforts and support for this movement and cause, hopefully this much needed change will come.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to all the family members and friends of those who have lost their lives to this. May those that have departed Rest in Eternal Peace.

We wish anyone reading this a safe, blessed day and week.
