She spoke up with a clear message and made it clear: “Sometimes I’m very appalled by the waves of hate that hit you when you show a smiling picture. I believe that normality is extremely important for the soul. Especially for them children. This is not superficial, naive or unempathetic. Everyone has to find their own way, their own strategy, to deal with war, suffering, destruction and fear.” And further: “The past has taught me that with a smile and the belief that everything will be fine in the end, the soul becomes and remains healthy. I don’t smile nicely, I don’t smile away. I smile because it makes me more positive energy for my family and above all ‘to do good’.” In order to set a good example, Cathy, like many of her colleagues, thought about what she could do specifically to help the people from Ukraine.Cathy Hummels explained here that she would like to take in orphans from Ukraine.

I am leading by example and can’t expect anything from others that I don’t do myself. I can’t point a finger at others and say: take in refugees. They need help. I’m pointing three fingers back at myself. So here’s my answer: I want to give orphans a home in my house. I stand up for those who can do nothing for this war and not even parents have to protect them.”By the way, in order to preempt renewed criticism, the 34-year-old emphasized that she would never take in an orphan without a carer. “As a child in a strange country and with a stranger language it’s important to have a caregiver who speaks your mother tongue”according to the presenter.(iger)Windsor Castle, which is about 35 kilometers outside of the British capital, away from busy London, was used by the Queen for a long time mainly as a weekend residence.
