I am Welsh-b0rn of Irish Catholic descent and from Cardiff. I am glad that the judge and jury were sympathetic to Mr Harvey. If I have got it right Mr. Harvey was cleared of GBH with intent, but will be sentenced for GBH later on this month? I also understand that his family were subject to abusive behaviour from local yobs in the months before the trial.
Have you heard if the youngsters who were involved in the tormenting of Mr Harvey
(and other teachers) were punished in any way? or has the school just turned its back on the problem
and let Mr Harvey carry the can?
Out of curiosity, did Enlgand get any ash from the eruption? And I am sorry the airports are open again ! ( LOL ).
Weather here has been kind of weird. It gets warm for a couple of days, then it gets cold and rains for a week. Like this week, we were hot, around 80-83 for three days, now it going to rain for the next week and temperatures are going to drop about 20 degrees. This is the central valley in California, it doesn't do that here.
Well you take care my friend. Gods' peace be with you.............
O God, your Son accepted our sufferings to teach us the virtue of patience in human illness. Hear the prayers we offer for our sick brothers and sisters. May all who suffer pain, illness or disease realize that they are chosen to be saints, and know that they are joined to Christ in his suffering for the salvation of the world, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen
Thank you for your prayers, I am hoping that soon family life will return to normal and that I can restart my RCIA classes, I am still desperately upset that I am unable to be confirmed. University is going incredibly well, I'm on course to work with children with mental health problems once I finish which is fantastic, something I've wanted to do for a long time. My brother is still being dreadfully rude to my mother but he did text her on Easter Sunday and wish her a Happy Easter so things may get better yet. I hope you and the family are okay?
Big Hug, Karoline xxx
