Following the Charlie Hebdo killings in Paris, hundreds of thousands went onto the streets to protest, including many heads of state. They declared their solidarity with the victims.
In April, the New York Times reported that, so far in 2015, more than 1,500 people drowned in the Mediterranean trying to reach Europe. Heads of State of the European Union observed one minute silence.
Last week, the mother of an old friend died. She owned a wheelchair enabled car, a Doblo. And guess what – well, I know you’ll never guess. The family decided that it would have been her wish for Pádraig to get her car. This coming week, if all goes according to plan, I’ll be driving the car to Hamburg.
Is this not absolutely and completely amazing? I cannot believe this incredible generosity. Just can’t.
