Super Mom

Just because

I hate the crime in our country. Hate it. Hate it. Hate it.

Last night my mom’s gardenboy was stabbed for no proper reason.
He was walking home from his sister’s house (who works for me) to his own, when some random fuckwit decided he looks like a good victim.

Apparently some words were exchanged and when John walked away, this fuckwit decided to take out his knife and stab him. Twice.

Did the ambulance come when they were phoned? No.
Has the police been there? No.
Did they help him immediately in the ER. No.

He is so badly injured that they needed to put a tube in to drain blood and fluid from his lungs but they let him sit in the ER for hours before helping him.

Now he is in one of our horrible state hospitals. We can only hope and pray that he doesn’t get an infection while he is there.

I took this on Tuesday.

  4. Sometimes I wonder what do these stabbers get by stabbing an innocent man! I pray for John. What a scary place. Take care always!

    People do get the notion that since I am living in the Middle East that I am in a dangerous place. But no crimes like that in Dubai. We can walk in the middle of the night outside and still come home in one piece (and I am so thankful).

  5. Yes, living in these conditions is not easy. And I can only imagine the state of our state hospitals. Hope John recovers soon.

    Poor John. He is always the friendliest and most entertaining guy, I can’t believe that people can hurt each other like that for nothing. Send him our love. I wish people would just realise what they do to each other……

  17. Wonderful blog! I found it while browsing on Yahoo News.
    Do you have any suggestions on how to get listed in Yahoo News?
    I’ve been trying for a while but I never seem to get there! Many thanks
