Tuesday is for chasing rainbows.


Take a breath its Tuesday.  As promised, I met with the manager of a quaint country pub I go to every Friday yesterday.  You see I am so lucky I take my mother, who is 86, there for a meal the people in the bar appreciate how wonderful my mother is and has been as a parent and treat her like a queen. Mind it is one of those old English pubs where a real welcome is had by everyone.

When I told John, the manager, I wanted to invite friends to share in the launch of my book, Primeval Scream, he could not have been nicer.  So we came  with a time and a date for this soiree so everyone can put it in their diary, everyone who can attend that is.

The date for the Evening Soiree is 11 September 2015 Start Time 20:30, quite late but it matches the dark nature of the book. There will be a famous duo performing a few numbers too (will tell you about them nearer the time) and if you can get we can meet each other too.

I’m lucky to have had the parents I did as they both worked hard to ensure their three children were happy.  Thinking about this I did a little work last week and everyone who has the book knows the opening gambit give me a boy… and so on.  I was talking to a young lad aged 7 who attends a very good ‘public school’ in Durham about his future: he gave me a full account of his route; the college he would be going to in Oxford, then the law firm he would be joining, just like his father and so on.  I was astonished his account was so detailed.

After a while I thought to myself, could other children do that?  Most at seven, because of circumstances, have no idea what they will be doing.  Many are trying to survive.  It is our role to break down these barriers, ensure the safety of the young in society.  It is only when they are safe can they truly be happy. It is only when they are happy that they can consider their future.  It is only when everyone is fulfilled that society will be the inclusive place we all pray for.

Have you done anything to help today?  Have you heard any of the silent primeval screams many children give?  Sometimes you may miss them so silent are they.

Can you help one child on the way to finding their pot of gold at the end of their rainbow?  Everyone can make a difference.
