For British Isles Friday I was going to talk about The Secret Garden, a classic book I finished while trying to recover from a stubborn virus. Right now my thoughts are about the people in Manchester England and book talk seems so inappropriate.
I’m keeping up with the news and filled with sadness when I look at the photos of the children who were killed and reading about the parents who lost their lives while awaiting their daughters to get out of a pop concert. The initial photos and pleas for information about missing loved ones was heart wrenching.
It’s all so senseless. I will never in a million years understand the hate that would direct anyone to commit such a heinous act.
I feel such compassion for these people who have lost a loved one. Despite the grief and shock, perhaps because of it, Manchester has certainly come together as a community with love and support. My thoughts are with you.
