Thought for the day

Charles Cowling

 

 

A culture that keeps death out of sight and mind is one that is increasingly lost for words when comforting others in their grief. Instead of having that important conversation in the supermarket with the lady down the street who has lost her husband, we slip down the next aisle with the self-justifying thought that we do not want to disturb her … Where death becomes a private matter, it becomes so much more difficult to reach out to others precisely when they need it most.
