Hamilton: Children and people suffering because of selfish men

February 25, 2020

Working, Striving towards a more Peaceful World "I WRITE, I SHARE, I DREAM!"

Lewis Hamilton has once again used his social media presence to advocate global peace and well-being – today, the reigning Formula 1 champion used his Instagram platform to call for an end to conflict in the Middle East, primarily Syria.

On his Instagram story, Hamilton wrote:

“Everyday I wake up and see the news on Syria. It’s been going on for nearly 9 years, why has the world stood by and let them [the Syrian people] suffer. These poor children and people suffering everyday because of selfish men, countries not doing anything to help them. This is so sad. Praying for the people out there “

Documentary exposes murder, Saudis and US greed merchants

Doco unpacks sordid plot, writes Steven Zeitchik.
The killing of Jamal Khashoggi in 2018 was a historic event, a brutal wake-up call about the fragility of free speech under a supposedly reformist Saudi Arabian leader.

Now it’s poised to turn into something else: a cinematic event.

People going to church this Christmas believe God is a powerful force for good in the world and he, or she, sometimes works in mysterious ways. Christians, whose faith is founded on the redemptive event of Christ’s crucifixion, can readily believe that good can grow from tragedy.

New Zealand this year has experienced a most appalling tragedy. The slaughter in March of New Zealand Muslims at prayer in two Christchurch mosques had a profound effect not just on this country but the world.
