I’m sure every visitor here was touched by the video added last Sunday:
It’s a powerful anti-guns, knives and drugs video with a clear message, reinforced by a strong vocal.
If you want, do please pass it on to your contacts, so it might reach a wider range of viewers.
Tragically, David’s son was stabbed to death, and we cannot begin to know how he and his family feels.
David has sent this further message, which is good to share:
It was very kind of you to take time out during this busy period to write. I thought I may not hear from you until the new year because you must be very busy with the Blog and family. Thank you for your kind words of support and for sharing your experiences with me. We do so much to protect our children, but it is never enough.
The world has gone crazy and whilst I do not want to be too sad, understandably, I wish I could be with my son as I feel he is alone, but I take comfort that he would want me to try and make a difference, so his life was not in vain.
Shirley’s voice is so powerful. We were thinking of Dionne Warwick’s version, but Shirley’s interpretation is so appropriate and much superior. It has me in tears each and every time I listen to it. I hope Dame Shirley does not mind my adding her voice to this campaign. I know artists can be funny if they feel they are associated with this sensitive subject, but it is all for a good deed.
Have a peaceful, happy and healthy Christmas and 2008.
Thanks again for your kind words and support of our campaign.
