Thought of the day 19/01/2020

Today’s thought of the day is to discuss what happens when you have been affected by fire. We have seen this oh so much and there are more and more people who are affected so what do we have to do to get through?

Having witnessed Grenfell fire and now watching Australia burn, I have come up with my own way of coping and that is to know that I have a go bag no matter where I am staying. My go bag is not complete yet as there are things I would like to put in it that I am unable to at the moment put in but currently my go bag consists of the following.

1. Spare change of clothes; 2. a phone charger for my phone; 3. a jumper; 4. some snacks; 5. a copy of my insurance policies, bank accounts etc; 6. A dosette box with a weeks worth of medication so that if I need to I can still be covered till I can get replacements; 7. A list of all my medications; 8. Landlords details

What I would like to have in my go back is a phone that I can use so I don’t have to worry so much about making sure I grab my normal phone. Cash so that I will not be left without anything;

These things will not stop you feeling concerned once you have survived or witnessed a massive fire, what it will do is give you some comfort to know that should you be in a position where you have to get out of the house quickly due to a fire that you are prepared and you are not left without anything. After witnessing Grenfell burn and seeing the awful situation that the survivors found themselves in, I want to do everything that I can to make sure that no matter what I am covered. It reminds me of the 5 P’s “Poor planning equals piss poor performance. I will avoid this situation so that I can avoid everything that could cause me issues.

Be prepared and you will hopefully never be caught out.

New South Wales Rural Fire Service

To the world.

I have seen the issues in Australia and I am saddened by all of it. It is heartbreaking to see all these fires and what the first responders must be going through whether they are fighting the fires, evacuating people from their homes, dealing with the wounded or helping the survivors.

We take our first responders for granted. We know they are there when we need them and say things like “it’s their job” or “no one helps me and I do my job all the time”. But the thing is there is a difference between office work and fighting devastating fires and we need to acknowledge that. This is why I am starting a Go Fund Me page where the proceeds will go to the New South Wales Rural Fire Service. It can hopefully help sure up the services they have, help them get the things they need to replenish their stocks and maybe provide support for their firefighters who are struggling to cope with the devastation they are seeing every day.

The brush fires are still going on and the work these people are doing is stopping them from spreading further. We need to support our uniformed services and this one especially because the firefighters are volunteers. They have their own work to do but volunteer to be firefighters on top of it.

Please help me raise the money to give them. Share, retweet, or whatever you can even if you donate 50p that is better then nothing.

Let’s show these people that we care and say Thank You For Your Service. I know there are many people out there who want to help so please let’s do this for them. I am just one disabled person wanting to help those who help their community I hope everyone else will be willing to help our brothers and sisters in Australia

Open Letter

A letter to the Prime Minister of Australia

Dear Scott,

I would call you Mr Prime Minister but I do not think you deserve it.

I would like to know why, you have not called for help with the bush fires? I know many people across the globe who would willingly jump on a plane to Australia to help with the fires yet you have failed to ask for help from the global community, why is this?

Instead of being there with your people, the people who elected you into office, during this crisis you decided to go on holiday. Are you kidding me? That move alone will bite you in the behind next time there is an election. The whole world sore you do it. So, why have you not asked for help?

Could it be that you are ashamed of how you have behaved? If this is the case, you should be ashamed. This is almost on par with Theresa May turning up after all the other politicians visited the survivors of Grenfell Tower.

How many people have to loose their lives before you actually ask for help? How many first responders and military personnel have to be irrevocably destroyed mentally before you act? These fires have gone on for so long that your people must be running on fumes and still you have not reached out to the global community.

You really need to start doing the job that you were paid to do and start looking after the good people of Australia before the fires engulf more parts of the country. Any further loss of life is on your head, your hands are bloody.

I am running a poll to see how many people would hop on a plane tomorrow to help if they didn’t have to worry about non-crisis issues such as visa’s, airfare and living costs and in 48 hours 321 people signed up and 319 people said they would go. People are dying to help your citizens out. Maybe its high time you start thinking about your citizens and less about your political career.

I implore you, see sense and ask for help!!

Yours Faithfully

Citizen of the world

If you could help?

Hi,

If you could help the Australian people by going there to support those who have lost their homes or the first responders would you?

If flights, VISAs, and maintenance were not an issue would you get on a flight now to help? I want to show the Australian Government how many people want to help them in their time of need. If, it is something that you would do, please complete the forms below.

I will use the responses to send to the Australian Government to show that there are people who want to help, they just have to ask for it and make it possible for people to help.

We are Stewards of the World

I am a Citizen of the World

I have long considered myself out of place and out of time. Just because I am Autistic I have decided that the reason I feel out of place is because I am a citizen not just of my country of birth, but of the world

I feel deeply for those who struggle not just here but across the globe. I hurt when I see the pain that other people are going through whether it is from natural disaster or through circumstance. I cant make the hurt stop however, what I can do is call for help

So because of this I want to call out to everyone. No matter what Religion you are be it Christian, Buddist, Muslim, Jewish or something else, we are stewards of the world. This even applies to those who are people of no faith. We are supposed to look after and protect the world and we have failed to do so.

So my call out is to everyone. What we are seeing in Australia at the moment is total devastation. Homes and lives are being lost and our first responders are doing the best they can. The Military is doing the best they can but they need our help. What ever you can do to help those affected by the Bushfires please do so.

Look at the red cross, look for things that can help these people who have lost everything, The trees and the environment that has been destroyed, the wildlife that could be extinct because of these fires. We need to do something to help everyone. We are stewards of this world and we are all human. I dont care about political views but we need to help these people.
