There are some shining beacons
Out there in the darkest times,
When broken countries need some gluing
As their parts begin to scatter,
People stepping in with golden hearts
And pockets deep enough to help
And showing just how good we are.
With the awful events that are happening in Ukraine, we are starting to see wonderful people step up to the plate and do some really great things.
Our government have started a scheme where people can sign up and offer a home to refugees who are arriving in our country with nothing to their name. The people who are signing up are just marvelous human beings and I really applaud their kindness.
We saw similar efforts when COVID first hit our shores and it just goes to prove that there are some really good eggs out there. To open your home to strangers and show that kind of hospitality is truly amazing.
I must say that I wish we saw these acts publicised in normal times as they are nice to hear about and they are absolutely happening at all times, not just when everything feels like it’s crumbling around us.
Well done those people, and everyone else who looks out for others, even in the smallest of ways.

As horrible as the war is turning out to be (and the pandemic, too!), it does show us how good, decent, and caring people can be as well. Donations, opening homes, and other humanitarian efforts really do remind us that, as Anne Frank wrote, people are really good at heart (or they can be!). It gives me hope…
I agree, I think that given the right conditions most people want to do the right thing.
