At this difficult time …

10 Aug

I usually publish a blog post on a Wednesday about marketing, Libro work done, students, whatever.

Waking up to another set of images of my beautiful city smashed and looted, and dreadful news of murders in the name 0f – what? I can’t help feeling that to do that this morning would be trite.  That’s my personal opinion. I completely accept the actions of whoever feels they are able or want to do whatever today. That’s how I feel about my own output.

I continue to work hard on Libro projects, earning money that I will do my hardest to spend in the local economy, with other independent small businesses. But marketing and self-promotional activity is suspended for the meantime.

I dedicate this post to the small businesses, in Birmingham, Lewisham and Peckham in particular, in all the other affected in general, who have been hit by this mindless and vile action on the part of a small section of our society.

I stand shoulder to shoulder with all my fellow city dwellers, of whatever race, ethnicity, nationality or colour and hope hard for peaceful times to resume.

    Absolutely support you Liz- small businesses have enough to cope with to make them viable without the situations some of them have had to face in the last few days

        thank you for this post, It seems like it needed to be said. There are more good people than bad. Does writing leave you feeling better?

          Thank you for your comment. I felt better having written that and not some marketing stuff, but I felt properly better once I’d marched around the streets of the city with a broom all day on Wednesday, with a load of other people, cleaning up and showing people there are decent people here as well!
