On the bus this morning and thoughts can’t help drifting to the missing 3 year old boy, Mikaeel Kular, last seen on Wednesday evening at his home in Drylaw, Edinburgh.
As I stare into the distance and hope for good news and Mikaeels safe return to his family I suddenly focus on the rain drops running down the number eight’s front window.
I remember from my media studies course about how on TV or in the movies bad news often comes with rain or storms, the ‘sympathetic atmosphere’. Thankfully the same rules don’t apply in real life, and I hope and prey that good news will emerge today and young Mikaeel will be found safe and sound.
