Day of Reflection

Day of Reflection

Today is Marie Curie’s National Day of Reflection, an opportunity for us all to connect with one another and show support for the millions of people who are grieving, and reflect on the lives of family, friends, neighbours and colleagues we have lost during the last two years. While life is beginning to return to normal for some people, several million people are still living with the trauma of loss, and not being able to grieve properly. This includes many children as well as adults. We need to come together, in our streets, workplaces, schools and communities, as well as with the nation at large, to acknowledge and soothe this pain.

Later this morning, from 10am on Wednesday 23rd March, Lea Fields Crematorium will be marking this day with a morning of quiet reflection in the chapel, concluding with a minutes silence at 12 noon. Local residents are welcome to join the team, support staff, families and other members of the community, to remember those no longer with us and share the grief together. Let’s make the legacy of the pandemic years one of compassion, love and active support for those who grieve, both now, and in the years to come.
