I recently read an article on the BBC website about Professor Karim Brohi. He is the clinical director of the London Trauma System, which oversees the trauma care at 30 hospitals across London. It was a very insightful article, as it highlighted the huge number of trauma cases the trauma teams have to deal with on a daily basis. But not only that, it highlighted just how many of those trauma cases are actually young men and women who are the victims of stabbings.
Here’s an extract from the article (you can read the whole article on the BBC website).
The surgeon believes violence is increasing not just on London’s streets, but across the country.
“We do our best to save lives. But to really save a life – and make one that’s worth living – takes a whole community.
“We need to look again at our society, our culture and our values if we are to live in a world where children can be children, and mothers can be mothers, without ever having to sit in a hospital waiting room.”
It could be just that we have better access to information about the number of violent crimes than we used to have. However it definitely seems as if there’s been a huge increase in the amount of violence in our cities over the last few years.
Professor Brohi’s words really hit a chord thought don’t they? Our whole world seems to have lost sight of what should be important to each one us, our family, our friends, our neighbours, our community. In fact our world has sadly forgotten, or more accurately decided to turn away from God. God and God alone can bring peace back to this world, where man lives in harmony and peace with his fellow man.
God and God alone reveals the truth of all we call unknown
and the best and worst of man wont change the Master’s plan it’s God’s and God’s alone
