The miracle continues

9th of July 2018

The miracle is ongoing.

The boys are being rescued from the cave one by one.

The attitude of the Thai people is something we could take as an example of humanity.

The parents and the relatives are sticking together like one. They are supporting each other and they are not playing the blame game.

This is the attitude I recognise in my Asian friends. They support each other and try to make everything well again.

When I write this there is night in Thailand. The rescuers are resting preparing for tomorrow. Lets just hope the rain will stay away one more day.

I wish we could learn from the Thai’s experience, and stop the blame game. Had this happened in Europe or America I am sure there would be shouts about who to blame, trying to find the scapegoat.

Does that solve anything­?

No. It does not, it only makes everything worse.

Today there is summer here in Penela. The temperature went up to 30 and felt like 34. Now it is cooling down but tomorrow there is another summer day with 30 something.

I like the summer but this one is different. Global warming? Most likely and Trump going to Europe this week. We should be worried, I think.

Having someone that has it as his highest goal to ruin everything that has been done by his former president is frightening.

The weather, the power of the Trump and all the extremes remind me of what I read in the Bible when I was a teenager.

Are these the times when the maniac rises and destroys us all?

I don´t know. All I know now is that I hope the rest of the boys will be rescued tomorrow with their coach and that the world leaves them alone to heal.

PST is nothing to take lightly. It needs to be treated as soon as possible so it does not follow the boys through their adult lives.

Let´s just pray for the boys and the coach. That is the best we can do and let us leave them in peace to heal the wounds.

I am Icelandic but live in Portugal. When I was young I had a dream. I wanted to travel around the world. I wanted to experience different cultures. My dream came true and I went to London. When going through the Chinese display in the British Museum I began to cry. I cried and experienced this longing and sadness. At that moment I knew I had to go to China. Arriving there for the first time I felt finally at home, a feeling I never had in Iceland. In Iceland I was an outsider. My mother passed away and I decided to move. My destination was China. I lived there for a while but had to sell my house and move because permanent residence was not granted to me. I moved to Portugal and that was 6 and a half years ago. In China I taught English and dance. In Portugal I am a retired resident. Now I am 72 years old. I love to write and want to share with you some of my experience in those 2 countries and also just my simple thoughts. Portugal is my final destination on this earth. Even though I have many years behind me, my mind is clear. I enjoy the life and make the most of every day. I love to sing, to study and most of all I love to be alive. I hope you will enjoy reading my thoughts that I share with you.
