I am sad today, very sad. The last two days have given us nothing but bad news of death and destruction.
The dreadful tragedy in Norway which makes one wonder what sort of people would kill innocent people in an unrealistic bid to try to make their voices heard in a a country where tolerance and respect for other people' beliefs and culture are the norm.
Then fast on its heels, the announcement that Amy Winehosue has died. "Nothing" one may think compared to what happened in Oslo, or indeed, in other parts of the world but the unnecessary self destruction and loss of life as a result nevertheless.
So I'm sharing one of my favourite prayers by way of music in the event that anyone reading this may feel as sad and as much at a loss as I am. Take comfort in the prayer of St Francis.
