Evening at Liverpool’s Waterfront
Long before the Beatles created headlines for Liverpool, the skyline of the “Graces” was a skyline recognised over the world. But as of 10am this morning, those, who so called know all about culture, i.e. UNESCO, stripped Liverpool of its World Heritage Status.
Why…. because Liverpool has done its best to develop the City, fit for the times we live in, whilst protecting its heritage. In that process it has had its history, commerce and the economy of its citizens at its heart. Liverpool, a City that has had to undergo many dramatic changes, which at times has seen its citizens suffer hardships, yet still remain proud of its long history and their unique culture.
So what do we have to understand from this decision. That progress is frowned upon and we should view our history pickled in aspic in a glass jar.
Liverpudlians are a tough and philosophical breed….. they will take this blow in their stride. Just a shame that they have to.
Where ever you are today and whatever you doing…
Please Remember ….
Stay Safe …. Be Kind…. Look After Each Other
