Today is a tough day for me because it is 15 years since my mother was killed in a car accident. This anniversary comes just over a week since a terrorist killed 50 innocent people at prayer and wounded so many more in my homeland.
My words are absent but this piece written by Simon Wilson has spoken deeply to me today. I would encourage you to read it and absorb it and go more kindly and peacefully in the world.
Wonderful words, thank you. I’ve just driven past several schools where the children have left their messages tied to the fence outside.
Love to you on this day of remembrance.
Thank you Ruth. Take care.
A powerful article. Standing alongside you in peace and kindness.
I found it very moving. I hope you are doing as well as can be expected.
Yes, but it still feels as though the stuffing has been knocked out of me.
I am away from the intensity that must be everywhere in your city but I relate to that feeling you express.
These anniversaries go so deep. Be gentle with yourself Lynley as you remember the tragic loss of your mother, along with the shock of the events in Christchurch.
Moving and powerful. Love to you.
Hi Lynley, nice to hear from you again. I hope you are well and able to get over this very sad day
Do remember, Whatever happens, the dawn will break and a new day will begin..
Hello Judith. Nice to hear from you again. Keep warm in this cold weather.
