They have been calling it the beast from the east. That is the extremely cold weather and snow we are currently experiencing in London.
At times like this my heart goes out to parents with their young children having to wait at bus stops for public transport. As I drive by all I want to do is stop and offer someone a lift but when I watch the news it reminds me of how unsafe our society can be. In this day and age danger comes in so many unsuspected forms.
Moments like this remind me that the little things I take for granted like being able to drive my kids around is wishful thinking for some. I am truly humbled when I see how some people have to get around with their kids on terrible weather. I wish our society was a safer place so that we can do a lot more to help one another without potentially putting ourselves at risk.
