Come Sit By Me A While : A Deep Set Anger For Low Lives !!!

Source

Much as I love to write about the beauty of the world every now and again the dark side of man will raise its head and of course this side of life cannot be ignored.

Here is a status I posted to Facebook last night.

"I heard something today that made me so angry !!A certain person who lives locally (I wish I could name him) last weekend invited guests who were attending a nearby wedding to park on his property as long as they donated money which he was apparently going to pay into 'Help For Heroes' .He was afterwards known to brag... at how daft people were as he had had no intention of paying anything in and had just made a 'fast buck' of over £50 which went into his own pocket. When I think of how many of our soldiers have suffered fighting for their country and how many families have lost loved ones I am sickened by the lack of morals of some people ; disgusting vile scum is what I call him and any others like him."

He has been reported and investigations are on-going but whether anything will actually be proven I am not sure.

My partner Dai served in the forces for twelve years and this has really touched a nerve !!!!

Here is a passage from Prince Harry which signifies all that I feel.


"So many of our Servicemen and women have made the ultimate sacrifice; so many lives have been lost and so many changed forever by the wounds that they have suffered in the course of their duties. For these selfless people, it is after the guns have fallen silent, the din of battle quietened, that the real fight begins – a fight that may last for the rest of their lives."

HRH PRINCE HARRY, MAY 2012ON BEING PRESENTED WITH THE AWARD FOR DISTINGUISHED HUMANITARIAN LEADERSHIP.

Many brave souls

fight for their country

so gallant their deeds

so proud their kin.

Many brave soldiers

a life is lost

their bravery

remembered

but

at such a great cost.

Many are fatally injured;

Families hearts grieving

Sadness from losses incurred.

Our hearts swell

with united pride

a cross of love

by each side.

Each day they bravely

combat

forward they plough

each heart so proud

never a thought

so selfless

for their own safety

for others they

fight.

A Mother and father's loss

children grow up

never to know

never to see a parent;

a partner to mourn

a life cut short

a gallant heart

fighting for the love of their homelands.

Selfless their hearts

their fears cast aside;

on and on

their honour abide.

Bombs and guns

explode

in shattering precision

blood flows

our soldiers

surmounting bravery

a legend for

eternal creations

of gallant hearts.

Never ever forgotten;

In our hearts they stay

each one so honoured

each one so respected

each one a heart so true !!!

God Bless them all !!!



Source

Then come the scavengers

the low lives

the scum

who like leeches feed from the bravery of others.

Spirits weak

cowards in abundance!!

Hearts so clod

characters so dark!!

To squirm through

the goodness laid by others

to lie

to steal

each cowardly heart

beating with a beat so feeble

lily livered

names to be stamped

into an oblivion

full of stagnant stench !!

The stench of

liars

cowards

with hearts and spirits

a mocking imitation of

of our brethren who give their lives

each day each month each year

for others!!

So we and our descendants

may have may have better lives .

These vile scum should all be named and shamed!!!

I end here now with a thought for us all.

If ever we hear of such wrongdoings ;if ever we suspect someone is making a fast buck off the backs of others ; if we now know of someone who has no morals at all ;no conscience ;no respect for the gallant deeds of others then do not hesitate to act ;stand up and make that call .Even if our findings come to nothing at least we will have tried.

This hub is different to my other ones but I'm afraid that there will always be scum to be shown up for what they are and myself and my partner feel strongly about this and sadly this will always be a part of life.

We have stood up and made that call as we have so much respect for those who have and are so selflessly fighting for their country.

God bless each and every one of them ;today and forever.

Eddy.

My dad served his country in two wars, and to do as this one here has done under pretense of helping out our servicemen, is such a disgrace! I know how you feel.

Thank you for sharing your thoughts and I pray this person realizes what he has done!

Well said!

Blessings, Faith Reaper

I have many relatives who served our country, including my own dad, grandfathers and uncles, too. So, couldn't agree with you more that this is deplorable to say the least. I always be thankful for all the men and women who have fought to make us safe and would hope that this one man would be brought to justice for the heinous act. Thank you for sharing and bringing this one to light, Eddy. Hoping you are having a better day today and sending love as always!

Exactly Janine this act (and sadly there are many many more just like him ) affects so many people world wide!! I haven't lost anyone who fought in a war but it doesn't stop me from feeling so angry. It is just not this charity ;I have my own Ty hafan charity set up in Erin's name and if someone did this to me I know exactly how it would feel. As I said we have taken steps but not sure what will come of it. Thanks for replying Janine and have a great day too.

It is such a shame that there are people like this in our world. Good for you to stand up and make his greed and arrogance known. You can't do things like this and it not come back to "bite you in the a**". He will get what he deserves, what goes around, comes around and as my mom would say, "God don't like ugly", and what he has done is surely ugly!

Your lovely poem, Eddy, and Prince Harry's eloquent statement are perfect complements to each other. Thank you for taking this gallant social activist stance to fight against the base behaviors of scammers who amorally represent the worse kind of homeland enemy. Your words cut like a sword, my friend! Good for you! Aloha and three cheers for Eddy!

Eddy,

Not everything in life is rainbows and butterflies; that's for sure! But I for one, am glad that you found this worth sharing and I'm also glad to see that you feel so strongly against such injustices. You're particular situation is frustrating but your message fits so many circumstances and it really is tragic that these kinds of things happen so regularly. As long as there are people who aren't afraid to stand up and speak out, then there is a glimmer of hope.

I have an utmost respect for those who serve... I think war stinks, but I appreciate those that are willing to sacrifice their lives for ours. These people that have no compassion for soldiers, make me so sad as they would not have their freedoms if it weren't for those protecting them.

My brother has been Air Force for more than 10 years and I'm proud, yet terrified, every time he flies away.

You're poem was beautiful and hit home... thank you so much!

Up and others ~ Sharing too!

Have a wonderful day!

Well done, well written, well thought out. I hoped writing gave you back a little of what the scum took from you -- your peace. He took some money but he took a piece of all our dignity. People do real harm when they insert such evil into our lives.

And others just keep pounding away, thanklessly giving it back to us. Heroes and warriors come in all forms: Thank you for yours.

Eddy, there will always be scum on the earth, how low can one go? It is good to know that most people honor our service men and women. We have a group in the US, ( Westboro Baptist church ) which is a hate group who attempts to disrupt the funerals of fallen men and women, saying that war is a sin and all who serve are sinners. We can do nothing to stop them because of our first amendment, freedom of speech. I am glad you vented your feelings. Blessings my friend.

Eddy, you are so right. To make money off a veteran is the lowest and most despicable thing that anyone could do. What is even sadder, many of them don't have jobs or places to live when they return home after having given so freely of themselves. THAT is a real travesty.

Eiddwen, I clicked on this especially to see your "dark side"...so to speak...and wouldn't you know, it wasn't yours at all--but this lowlife you described. (I am secretly glad...you seem so sweet!)

What a terrible profiteering maneuver; I have to say things like this happen over here, too, and is probably the lowest form of scam--utilizing a person's sympathies and loss, and mocking another's heroics...

Thank you for bringing this to the light. Everything that lives in the dark must ultimately be revealed to the light.
