Rev’d Sissons: Thought for the Day

Monday March 23, 2020

“You may not always have a comfortable life and you will not always be able to solve all of the world’s problems at once but don’t ever underestimate the importance you can have because history has shown us that courage can be contagious and hope can take on a life of its own.”

  • Michelle Obama

I am very mindful of what our Principal, Mr John Waszek, said at the extraordinary close of term service last Thursday, which was an emotional occasion for all in attendance.

This coronavirus pandemic poses the greatest direct threat to the elderly and to those with underlying existing health conditions.

So, it was with great admiration that I came across these defiant messages from a few of the residents of a care home in England.

I hope they may spur each of us on when we are in danger of losing hope and of focusing only on the worst-case scenarios.
