‘Looking back so that the view looking forward is even clearer.‘

It is a period of time for thoughtful reflection.

It has been an emotional time in the UK and worldwide, with many different feelings and perspectives.

This week as the world bid farewell to Queen Elizabeth ll the ceremony was impressive in its scale, impact, and organisation. Whether it was to everyone’s taste or not, for a great many people it provided a focus – a coming together, and time to pause and reflect on many things.

Let’s hope this is an impetus to build on the ways we are similar, because despite our many differing views, there are some values and dreams that most people hold dear and aspire to for future generations and for the future of humankind.
