The Scariest Thing
I'm sure every reader has their own individual phobia.
I wonder what's coming into your minds… Spiders? Heights? No?
You may laugh when i tell you mine but i stand by it…
Personally, I can't think of anything scarier than the News.
I can promise you all you'll never watch anything more terrifying on the TV.
It is my most profound fear and continues to be almost every day.
Yesterday, I felt it as strong as ever.
Ken Bigley (British Iraqi Prisoner) fought for his life for 3 weeks and finally lost it yesterday. He shared the same fate as his two American friends. And the whole thing was filmed. His family have seen it as confirmation.
I write about it but I think it's probably best not to think about.
My tip to you? Only watch the news if you think you can take it.
It really does make me feel unimaginably lucky and I'm going to enjoy today if only because I'm still luckier enough to have it.
