Massacre Of The Innocents....

Not remotely connected to anything Birds2blog is about, but too tragic to ignore, and necessary to share.

Pakistan has almost 5.5 million children that are out of school, the second highest number in the world only after Nigeria. 

On Tuesday 17 December 2014 a band of men walked into a school in Pakistan and massacred in excess of 130 children. These were Taliban extremists who see education as a threat. The best way to respond to their heinous crime is to meet their attack with a global call to get every child in school.

If you haven't already done so, please join the global call and consider signing the petition to Honour Pakistan's Children 

And the passing of a friendly Fylde birder.

On Friday I was sorry to hear some late news about the death of Tony Rhodes about a fortnight ago after a long illness. I only met Tony two or three times, when I did meet him he was always in the company of Maurice Jones and usually Barry and Roy, he was a nice man whose conversations would always include a friendly quip....Rest In Peace Tony.

I'm lost for words, Pete. I just can't understand how these butchers can think that such horrors can advance their 'cause'.

My best wishes to you - - - Richard
