Lockdown Time

 

Some things just are


Until they are gone or done



Death is surely such a thing 


that each and 


every one of us shall one day


fear no more

I hear that we have now lost almost 130,000 souls to C19 a shocking and unnecessary number ... may each one of them now rest in peace ...

We know that life = more often or not has a painful start and, it can have an equally painful finish. The between space is where we learn whatever.. What has been happening, what is happening, is tragic.. know of it closely but and say this with absolute respect, we need to somehow survive as individuals each morning when we wake whenever.. and then once cuppa~d, help others to see what there still is. Am not, not, NOT meaning to be fairy about the pandemic, dear Lord, anything but.. cannot and won't. But, whilst we are alive, knowing that there'll be a time when we'll disappear over the horizon, we really must look towards it and cheer. Surely? Somehow..

good morning Neville.. in the end it really isn't so complicated is it.. I choose to believe that we lost all those lives to politics.. C19 was just the weapon that was used.. somewhere it is said that we must leave death to the dead and life to the living.. perhaps now that vaccination is the hope of the day we can turn to the task of figuring out how we will live with each other.. and maybe not.. we still haven gotten over the civil war so I do have my doubts..

How amazing how so much can be said in just 4 lines!

We don't really die, you know ;-) we transform, and with every transformation our higher conscious get better and better!

Honourable tribute Neville to those that has passed, may they arrive in peace, and may God comfort the hearts of those that cry for their lost. Thank you!

Stay hopeful!

Death is inevitable so no point in fearing it, but when we see the suffering that made us feel. Covid is such a time and situation where death danced a reckless dance. .. So I think it has become a reality to accept death.. It's no longer an uncomfortable situation to bear or hear. But each life is precious... So this fight with death... A sombre write here

........... Thanks for checking in PB ..
I never feared death, not in the past not now not in the future :) people should understand that fear destroys them, mentally, emotionally and physically. may we all rest in peace, here and in the other side.

Covid has spread fear as well as disease.. In the early days I felt it acutely. Now it is more apprehension, but then things have moved on and we have vaccines being rolled out now. Then there was fear when my brother in law went into hospital and contracted the virus while in there, and subsequently dying from it. Our family is one of 130,000 who have lost a loved one in the UK. Some families have lost more than one relative. We have been crippled as a nation and throughout the world. The fear of something out of control and multiplying by the minute is science fiction stuff and yet we have experienced it. Let us remember those souls no longer with us on a bright Sunday morning and let us also remember where this disease started and the cover up in notifying the rest of the world with what was happening. Weeks in this case had devastating consequences. It hurts doesn't it, it is fearful. Thankfully those who have gone suffer no more, they are at rest. Those of us still here have got to pick up the pieces and move on. That's all there is.

Thank you Neville for thoughtfully paying tribute to those lost.

Chris
