The Last Furlong

Comments on the race of life.

Grief multiplied by millions

Leave a comment

I am watching grieving parents talking on British TV about the Chilcot report which is breaking right now, that has investigated the part Tony Blair and the government played in invading Iraq.

I feel choked up to realise that THEIR grief needs to be multiplied by millions to take into account all the sons, fathers, mothers, children, grandparents and grandchildren – OTHER PEOPLES  loved ones –  that were killed in the war.

We asked them not to do it. Millions of us – the people – not only here in the UK, but worldwide.

I'm someone also pounding the Path, just like you.. I'm retired, going into Old Age and loving my life. I'm hoping to remain happy and well for as long as possible. Old Age is not SO bad - yet!

Please do comment! That's part of the fun...
