Reflections - 31 October 2017
I have always had a keen interest in current affairs and politics, which is why I frequently include references to events of national and international importance in my blogs; I am a political animal, it is part of me, it makes me tick! Forever Enduring Cycles, like Spanish Views is a diary, referencing personal thoughts and feelings during difficult or important times in my life, as such, I include as much about me and my interests as I can. I have my own views and wish to get those across to the wider audience; it is my journalistic nature. Forever Enduring Cycles has many references to events that are shaping our World, this was the first!
Terrorism and the threat of violence has been a harsh fact of life for the year and half, since I started writing my second blog. This attack in France was the beginning of events that have included horrific assaults in Manchester, London and my adopted country of Spain. My own thoughts on these tragedies are well known; I often lay awake at night thinking about the state of the World, it has a big impact on my life!
As a blogger I understand the importance of making ones voice heard. Getting a message across can not only be rewarding, but also important, at pivotable times. Obviously no one is going to take any notice of lil ol me, but that isn't the point. Freedom of expression is necessary for my own well being and sense of character. If I didn't speak out, then I would not be the person, I believe I am. I have a set of morals, speak the truth as I see it and will always voice my opinion, as all of us should! Blogging is about talking, sparking debate and focusing on issues of personal significance. Forever Enduring Cycles documented my life, outside influences, governing my thoughts and the events that shaped who I am, Spanish Views continue that process!
