Hi Lizzie
Lee of Singapore said You worry about human rights when you have a full belly when it is empty you worry about starving.
We in Australia are fast to condemn others for human rights abuse but are slow to stop them here or to feed owe own starving and sick.

That is true Stephen. Have taken my words off as am feeling better today and do not wish to inflict my bleaknesss on everyone else.. I do have difficulties at times with the hypocrisy of a lot of Australians who "shock horror look what they are doing in such and such a place we are so perfect" and completely ignore the needy and lonely in this country. I guess quietly volunteering to visit a lonely sick person in a home does not receive the accolades of standing on a street corner screaming and chanting. It boils down to chanting and screaming means someone else has to do something but to really make a difference and volunteer here in Australia means the individual has to give up some of her precious time to really make a difference in someones life. I do get a little angry at people protesting at the human rights injustices doing nothing on their own doorstep. Thank you Stephen for your comment. Cheers Elizabeth

I do love daisies Elizabeth....I went crazy during the summer and did a hard heavy prune on mine...Now that the weather has cooled they are starting to grow back nicely.....I`m forever picking the flowers....They look so fresh and clean....

I was feeling a little down with my work over the weekend with two palliative care patients passing away over the weekend. One was a hard death and lonely. I mentioned that perhaps a lot of Australians before bemoaning the civil rights injustices of the world should have a long hard look at what is going on in their own backyard with the lonely sick and elderly on their doorstep so as to speak who would enjoy a little conversation or a visit from a relative.

Just a little rave....
