A warm hello to each and every one of you.
I am rapidly approaching my eighth anniversary as a member of this community, and am pleased to be spending my third period as an Ambassador.
The world seems in turmoil right now; not only do we still have futile wars raging across the globe, but we are now facing a global pandemic surging across the world. This pandemic is no respecter of race, colour, or creed. It does not discriminate between rich and poor, and not between common and famous. Whilst I am no conspiracy theorist, I do believe we should think deeply as to how this came to be able to take hold.
We in the west are privileged to have health services which are able to fight this battle. When I consider poorer nations, I feel that this is the time for the world to abandon self interest and hold out the hand of friendship and support without the wish for something in return.
I tremble for those living in middle eastern refugee camps, for those living in townships in South Africa, and for everyone that struggles to access free and available health care.
This global community that we enjoy on Wattpad is a gift, we can publish our stories, and poetry. We can read the works of others. Better than this we can engage with each other.
So, let me ask something of each and every one of you; try to be kind to each other, try to be generous with each other; but even more , please be kind to our planet, we are temporary residents, we are not the owners.
A very sincere thankyou to you all for sticking with me. I shall have some new works for you very soon.
Stay well, warm regards. Owain
