Sunflowers

Hello!   Like everybody I am shattered by the shooting down of an innocent passenger plane in what can only be called an act of war; everyone will have their own responses to it.   What hit me very forcibly was the shot on TV of searchers looking for bodies in that beautiful field of Sunflowers.   To me it was reminiscent of the association of poppy fields with the dead of the First World War.   Then parents of one of the Australian casualties remarked, 'Our son died in the sky -  and we look up,  thinking of him still up there!'    Surely this is the  best kind of spiritual and positive way to begin to come to terms with their dreadful loss.
Love, Julia
