A national day of reflection

It has been one year since our first national lockdown. Marie Curie, the charity and 60 others are inviting us to join in a minutes silence at 12 noon and to also go outside at 8pm for a candle vigil (show of light). March in the UK at least is a windswept month which begins the spring, and the hope that we all have is palpable this year.

With rushing winds and gloomy skies, the dark and stubborn winter dies

March to me and many is a month full of expectation. None more so than this month, this year. Marie Curie chose today as a day of reflection because it is a year ago today that our first national lockdown started. Many lives have been cut short due to the pandemic and the loss for some of us is just an awareness and for others a very real loss.

We still have tough days ahead of us but together we can over come it. How can you participate?

  • Take a minute to reflect. 12 noon 1 minutes silence
  • Take a moment to connect; reach out to a person who has lost someone close. Say hi and listen if they want to talk.
  • Show support; Shine a light at 8pm

Nothing in life is to be feared; it is only to be understood. Now is the time to understand more, so that we may fear less.
