Hello, everybody, and thanks to you all for the amazing support I am receiving as RRBC’s March 2022 “SPOTLIGHT” Author!

I have to get something off my chest today.

For the first time in my life, I feel ashamed of the stance my government is taking regarding the refugees from Ukraine. We have taken in so few of them to date, and yet almost every day, asylum-seekers from many other parts of the world arrive at our shores in rubber dinghies and are taken in.

Today sees the U.K. issuing 700 visas for the refugees, however it is taking far too long to process them and bring these poor souls into Britain. My heart aches for these people. Poland and surrounding countries in Europe are taking them in by the thousands.

I appreciate the fact that we are a small island, but in my opinion, we are failing these innocent people.

Thank you for bearing with me as I shared my thoughts for today.  What do you feel about the support refugees are getting from around the world?  Do share your own thoughts down below. 

I hope to see you again soon!
