The Event Picks up Speed and Light-workers

THE EVENT: Surge of Refugees into Europe.

For those expecting an event this month, I believe this is it. For those who understand the power in numbers and the love held within the hearts of ordinary people, THIS IS The Event. It represents a surge in the number of people demonstrating the milk of human kindness. It demonstrates our mutual humanity. It is “The change we wish to see in the world”. IT IS US. We the people. We the little people who think big.

From the poorest of refugees walking hundreds of miles with babies and grandparents, to the kindest of ordinary people in countries such as Turkey, Greece, and even Hungary, who have fed them along the way, to the open hearts of Austrians and Germans (and their governments) to welcome their fellow human beings into their countries and into their hearts. THIS is THE EVENT. May the UK and others shortly follow.

It is my sincerest hope that as many souls as possible will join in this massive and generous undertaking. It puts me in mind of the film ”Before Winter Comes”, in which Topol and David Niven starred in 1969.
