    His Name Was Harry

    It is interesting you mention that, I was thinking the exact same thing.

    We all know ...

    It's the good time memories that helps to drive us forward - when someone who has woven themselves into your heart departs, the best way to remember them is to do something positive with your life, do something good. For many it is so easy to destroy, but to be creative is something special and the sad fact is that we all have something special to offer, it just seems like that part in many people just never gets the chance to surface and for others it only surfaces when something tragic happens in their lives. Imagine what an amazingly kind and prosperous world this could be if we could tap into that 'something special' without the tragedy! Just me meandering in the echoes of my mind of times gone by that should have been savoured, but were often taken for granted; reflection can be both a rewarding and bitter experience.

    Wow what a difference a photograph can make to a story. Seeing who is being talked about adds a whole new layer to the story. Thanks for adding that Brian.

    We all know ...

    I have to agree with your statement here; It is rather hard on us who are left behind, I find, if you try and spend quality time with the individual passing before he or she passes, it tends to make their passing much easier on you the one left behind. David, I want you to know you've definitely made a friend in me; I really apreciate you as both a person and as a friend. I am proud of you and how you have dealt with life. I would have never thought in a million years - I had a friend waiting for me across the pond (in the UK). I think to grieve is to show how much of an impact that person had on you; I would like to share a personal experience with you; This was an experience I had, after a man that meant much to me, as much as you do now. I could not agree more! We love you kiddo and I am personally glad you are here to share with us your experience in life.

    Forgiving Myself

    Forgiveness is a human reaction to a wrongdoing - however, forgiveness is as much for the benefit as the maligned as it is for the perpetrator. Not many people are so quick to forgive and that is a tragedy for both them and one they refuse to forgive. Nothing in this life is safe, there are accidents in waiting at every turn we make in our lives as well as those who would do us harm without blinking an eye. What happened was a terrible tragedy, but it was an accident; it was not premeditated and it was certainly not intentional. The family has forgiven you for being a part of that accident, now you have to forgive yourself; that is probably one of the most difficult things for someone to do. People should not go on punishing themselves - instead they should aspire to be a force of good in the world and make sure that they can forgive others for what they do as well as themselves. You are exactly that, a force for good and you are a good person that your family should be proud of. Life throws all kinds of things at us, it's how we deal with them in a positive way that lets the light disperse the shadows.

    Forgiving Myself

    There is usually one defining moment in our lives that somehow takes control of who we are and thrusts us into reality, shaping the very fabric of who we are to our core. Here is one such story, that a Humanastorian felt they would share with us today; in hopes it would help someone else out there going through the same type of situation. Join the conversation: Here.

    Forgiving Myself

    That morning my dad was due to drive me to my job at the telephone exchange but decided at the last minute to have a lie-in, so I drove myself instead. As I climbed a steep hill, I saw a taxi waiting to pull out on the right and – concerned he’d pull out in front of me – I kept my eyes firmly fixed on him. At the brow of the hill I kept my foot firmly on the accelerator but suddenly on the pedestrian crossing in front of me I saw an elderly woman. As I slammed on the brake she looked up in terror and tried to run – but we collided. In the silence which followed I could almost have convinced myself it hadn’t happened. But, shaking uncontrollably, I managed to get out of the car and drape a blanket over the woman. That’s as much as the efficient part of me could manage. Very quickly after that the police and ambulance arrived. At the police station the officer gently guided me to say I’d been driving at a legal 35mph rather than the 45mph I’d really been doing. It was the policeman’s way of protecting me and it was the first time I experienced someone forgiving me. But it took me a long time to see it that way – for many years I wished I’d been imprisoned. I was informed later that morning that Margaret Healey had died in hospital. At that moment I experienced myself in another dimension of time and space – a sense of total alienation from the rest of the world. That feeling stayed with me for years. Two weeks later I came home to find Margaret Healey’s brother talking to my parents. He told me that he wanted me to know that neither he, nor his family blamed me, and nor – he was sure – would Margaret. Deeply generous as I knew this to be, I wasn’t in a position to accept his forgiveness. I didn’t feel I deserved it. In fact it just made things worse because I knew I’d given a false statement to the police. The guilt was so bad that four years later I went back to the police station to confess that I’d lied about the speed I was driving, but the senior police officer I spoke to refused to take my statement. “Putting you in jail would turn a disaster into a tragedy” he said. My family very quickly fractured. The accident happened on my sister’s 12th birthday, thus tainting her special day forever. My mother’s way of dealing with it was to lay down the edict that we would never talk about it, and my father felt a terrible guilt for not having driven me on that day. Four months later my parents’ marriage collapsed and shortly after that my father vanished. We never heard from him again until we were informed of his death ten years later. For nearly two decades I didn’t speak about the accident at all. At one point I was so convinced I didn’t have the right to continue living, I tried to commit suicide. I avoided relationships and although I ventured into marriage I left when my daughter was two, taking her with me. But it was the birth of Meegan which made me want to live again. When Meegan was four, I started on a journey towards self-forgiveness after reading a book about Creative Visualisation. I’d tried to imagine how my life would have been without the accident –and during the process I realised that I am who I am because of Margaret Healey. But, even allowing myself to consider forgiving myself brought up the full force of guilt again. How can you be grateful for your life when you’ve killed someone? Meegan knew nothing of the accident but aged 14 I knew I had to tell her otherwise this secret between us would corrupt our lives. After I told her, she said, in a very matter-of-fact way, “so this is why we live such a peculiar life.” Her acceptance led me to start dealing with my past. In 2001 I was asked to write a book about my experience. Going public terrified me but I knew I had to do it to help others who were traumatised by the guilt of causing a death. The book was a great success and the letters started flooding in. The first person to contact me was a woman whose young daughter had been killed as she stepped out onto the road, and her mother wrote, “every day for the last ten years I’ve worried about the driver.” In that moment I suddenly realised that people have been more forgiving of me than I ever realised. The moment I’ve fixed forgiveness, it’s no longer real. It has to be changing and constantly challenging. What I forgive myself for today, I don’t know will apply tomorrow. - Kelly Connor

    The Queen of England

    The reigning monarch has three powerful constitutional rights: the right to be consulted, to encourage and to warn. These rights, however, do not necessarily give the monarch any such power. So, what power does the Queen have? The royal prerogative. The royal prerogative is, in a nutshell, a collection of executive powers and privileges held by a reigning (not ruling) monarch. Most of these powers are now exercised by Her Maj’s ministers in government, who implement the law of the day under the power of the Crown, hence the phrase ‘Her Majesty’s Government’. Over the last century, these executive powers have been scarcely used, making many people question why they still exist at all (and yes, it’s the Republicans asking these questions). The answer to this question is simple. Prerogative powers remain a way to protect British democracy and ensure that nobody, including the monarch and ruling government (in practice), can seize power. The Queen’s prerogative powers vary greatly and fall into a plethora of long definitions and practices. Here’s the condensed version: Political Power: Summoning/suspending parliament: The Queen has the power to suspend and summon the elected parliament. Declaring war: She can declare war against another country, but really, nowadays, this falls on the ruling prime minister, who can exercise the royal prerogative without council from the government of the day. Appointing the elected prime minister: The Queen is responsible for appointing the prime minister after a general election or resignation. She does this by choosing the candidate with the most support from the House of Commons. If a prime minister resigns, she will seek advice before naming a successor. If she does it without advice, uproar would ensue. The issue and control of passports: Issuing and withdrawing passports falls under the royal prerogative, which means every British passport being issued in the Queen’s name. This power is used by ministers on behalf of Her Majesty. Oh, and because of this the Queen herself, does not need a passport. Above the Law: As Queen, Elizabeth II cannot be prosecuted as the law is carried out in her name. Appoint/remove ministers: Her Majesty has the power to appoint and remove ministers representing the Crown (i.e. her). Royal assent: It is the Queen’s responsibility to the nation and her peoples to approve bills from parliament by signing them into law. She can also refuse a bill if she believes it will harm the country. Military power: Head of the armed forces: The Queen is head of the British armed forces – all that join the military must swear an oath of allegiance to her. Commissioning officers: Elizabeth II can commission officers into the armed forces and also remove them. Honors: Peerages: The Queen may create a life or hereditary peerage for anyone. All honors are given under the authority of the Crown. Because of this, the Queen has the last word on all knighthoods, peerages etc. Other Interesting Facts: Queen Elizabeth II is Britain’s 40th monarch since William the Conqueror was crowned in 1066. Her real birthday is April 21, but it is celebrated officially on the second Saturday of June. The Queen has given royal assent to 3,671 Acts of Parliament. Speaking of numbers, she and the Duke of Edinburgh have sent tens of thousands of Christmas cards since the accession. The Queen has 30 godchildren. She’s been to the FA Cup Final. The Queen knows how to use and fire a gun at will. The Monarch is also allergic to cats. But she loves dogs. Elizabeth has owned more than 30 corgis during her reign. The first was Susan, followed by current tail waggers Emma, Linnet, Monty, Holly and Willow to name a few. About furry beasts, the Queen has received countless live animals as gifts, including jaguars and sloths from Brazil and two black beavers from Canada. They were all given to London Zoo. Bizarrely, the Queen collects pepper grinders. Her Majesty visited a mosque in the UK for the first time in July 2002, in Scunthorpe, Lincolnshire. Someone tried to shoot her during the 1981 Trooping the Color ceremony, but she just continued down The Mall, on her horse. She has a top-secret Facebook (as in her actual Facebook) that she uses to keep in contact with senior members of the Royal Family. Her Maj has been to Australia 16 times, Canada 22 times, Jamaica six times and New Zealand 10 times. The Queen has received over 3.5 million items of correspondence during her reign. She once demoted a naughty footman for giving her corgis whisky.

    Horror Story

    The more you delve into the effects of Loneliness and how reaching it is, the horry story becomes clear. A recent UK poll discovered: The poll, believed to be the biggest of its kind, discovered those aged 16 to 24 suffered the most. Meanwhile 34 percent of 25 to 34-year-olds said they felt lonely often or very often. Teenagers and young adults are the most lonely people in Britain, with 40 per cent feeling isolated. The poll discovered that those aged 16 to 24 suffered from loneliness the most. This compares to just 27 per cent of over-75s saying they are lonely “often” or “very often” — despite being usually thought of as most at risk. In fact, the elderly reported the least loneliness of all age groups in the survey of 55,000 people. Just 27 per cent of over-75s said they are lonely often or very often. The figure increased slightly to 36 per cent for people in the 35 to 54 age bracket. It was 32 per cent for 55 to 64-year-olds and 29 per cent for those aged 65 to 74. Academics also found that those who had more “online only” Facebook friends — people they had never seen in real life — were more likely to feel lonely; another damning indictment of Facebook. This is a scourge the likes of which we haven't seen in decades and it has profound implications for people's physical and mental health; isolation is detrimental to health and yet it is being distributed wholesale by companies who have cultured and nurtured this sorry state of affairs in the pursuit of personal gain. Do you know anyone who has been affected by loneliness? If you do, there is something you can do to help - visit them, talk to them and let them know that there are real people in the world who care.
