Tale of Two…Extremes

Two news items last week caused me some thought…firstly, expectant mothers are to be allowed elective caesareans on the cash-strapped NHS because women are too scared to give birth naturally in today’s maternity wards and secondly, the Human Rights Commission finds that care of the elderly is abusive.

Two extremes of life and we can’t seem to get it right at either end…

As a society, we are extremely short of “care” and “kindness”. So what’s behind it?

A look at our animal roots could provide an insight which is over simplistic (hopefully)…when resources are scarce, animals isolate the old and restrict births to preserve the strongest in the herd…

Please prove me wrong…random acts of kindness needed urgently.
