Today we hear of another life snuffed out.


Luke Batty died at his father’s hand.  He joins Darcey Freeman who was thrown to her death from the Westgate Bridge 5 years ago.  Daniel Morcombe was snatched from his family a little over 10 years ago and now his parents are facing all of the memories as his alleged killer stands trial.

My heart goes out to the victims and their families.  I know there are others but these 3 are in my mind today.

Rest in peace.

Spare a Thought

Leave a comment

I had written a post which I planned for tonight but I have set it aside for the moment.  Instead, I ask you to spare a thought for a family torn apart in the most tragic of circumstances.

Here is the news report.  A girl has suffered a terrible, violent death.  A troubled mother has taken her life.  A father is traumatised and a young boy has witnessed things that no-one should ever have to face.

My thoughts are with the family and all who know them.

The news reports all seem to be focusing on the wealth and assets of the family.  Whatever the circumstances surrounding the deaths, one thing is certain, money does not guarantee happiness.

Sidonie – Rest in Peace.
