Garden Flowers, Vigil and Words

19 Jun

Our local Labour Party arranged vigils today for Jo Cox, the MP who was so cruelly murdered last week. We picked a bunch of flowers, Lupins, Daisies, Fuchsia and Rosemary, from the garden to take with us to Camborne this lunchtime and were very moved by the small and beautiful ceremony that was led by our Conservative MP.DSCN2269DSCN2276

The following inspirational words are from Jo’s husband, Brendan Cox:

‘Jo believed in a better world and she fought for it every day of her life with an energy, and a zest for life that would exhaust most people.

‘She would have wanted two things above all else to happen now, one that our precious children are bathed in love and two, that we all unite to fight against the hatred that killed her.

‘Hate doesn’t have a creed, race or religion, it is poisonous.’

    This is so sad, so sad… and I really can’t understand. Her husband’s words are so meaningful. I am so sorry to hear this, dear Sally. Rest In Peace this beautiful lady, I pray. Love, nia

    Beautiful flowers, but what a cruel tragedy. It was truly shocking. I’d heard of Jo Cox through her support for the Syria Campaign, but from what I’ve learned of her in the past few days, she stood for everything that we would want in a decent and civilised democratic society.

      Yes, a tragedy indeed. I didn’t know much of her either but the more I hear, the more I wish I had known her personally.
