Not A Great Day 22nd Oct 2014


prince_county_hospitalcanada_flagThe day started out badly and then went from bad to worse. First thing this morning I had to take my wife Linda, to the emergency at the Prince County Hospital with severe abdominal pains. It turned out her appendix was inflamed and she was immediately booked for surgery. The surgery took place at approximately 8 pm tonight, she is in recovery now and I’m told everything went well. While I was sitting by her bed this morning another incident was taking place in Ottawa. A cowardly shooting of an unarmed soldier standing guard duty at the National cenotaph, the young soldier died from his wounds. The terrorist then gained entry to the Parliament Buildings and more shots were fired, the terrorist was gunned down.  It is unknown if other gunmen are still in the area as bits of news filters down through the media. Large parts of the Capital City remain in lock down condition. Quite a dreadful day indeed, we can only hope the remaining terrorists are brought to heal very soon. This is a wake up call for Canada, but I have all confidence that Canada is wide awake and we shall prevail over these cowardly scum. Scum who have been given the privilege to live in this great land and to call themselves Canadians. Send them back to where they came from or to ISIS where they want to belong. As for my poor Linda, hopefully she will get home in the next couple of days. Its time for bed for me, its been a long day, I’m sure things will look    better in the morning. Good Night Sleep Tight.

Next Morning 23rd Oct 2014. Well things do look better today, Linda is doing well and I’ll be off to see her shortly. On the radio I heard that Arsenal beat Anderlecht 2-1 in the European Champions league. So the day is indeed off to a go start.

God Bless and keep reading
