A heavy heart today

86 years ago today my father was born. I miss him.

75 years ago today was the liberation of Auschwitz – the prime example of what happens when fear and hatred trump humanity.

1 day ago my son was devasted by the untimely passing of one of his sporting heroes, Kobe Bryant.

May his memory, and the memory of all those loved ones who have been lost, be and remain a blessing.

    1. Thank you, Servetus.

      Auschwitz – I never quite know what to say either, it’s such an unfathomable thing and humanity does not seem to be able to really learn from it either, it makes my heart very heavy.

    Garder en mémoire, ce que nos anciens (maintenant disparus) nous ont appris et devoir le transmettre à notre actuel entourage, est aujourd’hui la lourde tâche qui nous incombe. C’est là que nous nous réalisons. Here I am with you Esther.
