Oh, the linguistic skills of students today!
The impact of your statement is somewhat diminished by using wan't when it of course should be want ! I do agree that the written english skills of students and most worryingly graduates these days leaves a lot to be desired. Some of the CV's I've read whilst recruiting have been truly appalling!

Whilst running over crocodiles in Zapcats may sound fun, being at the receiving end of automatic weapons fire in Uganda, doesn't.

This is a very sad story and a very sad time for my family.

Steve Willis is my partners cousin.
They are a very close family.

Steve was a great guy and will be very sadly missed by all his family and friends.

My thoughts at this time are with his mum, dad, wife, son, sister and the rest of my better halfs family.

The held a memorial service for Steve on Saturday and are hoping to fly him home in the next few days.

Regards

Steve was not part of the main team.
He used to be a diplomat with the FCO out in Uganda.
He left a few years ago to start his own company.
He ran a holiday type company.

He had a call on Monday to say the team were in trouble on the Nile.
He raced out to help them.
Found that one of the team was badly injured and Steve was taking him to hospital when their vehicle was ambushed.

Makes think how swift it can all be taken away from you.

Regards
