Today is the 42nd UAE National Day…42 years ago the various individual Emirates got together and decided to unite and become the United Arab Emirates…good decision! Since then the UAE has gone from strength to strength and become a force to be reckoned with. It’s also an amazing place to call home! I consider myself extremely fortunate to be able to live in this tolerant and constantly evolving society.

On a sad note, I cannot stop thinking about Paul Walker and his sudden death on Saturday in a terrible car accident.

He was only 40 and really in the prime of his life… he seems to have been a really nice , normal guy , who valued his privacy and was very involved in numerous charities. Even though I was never a major fan of the Fast and Furious movies, it has saddened me to hear of the sudden loss of someone who had so much ahead of him .

R.I.P Paul Walker.
