Today i stood quietly with many others outside our cathedral as a mark of respect for Sapper Elijah Bond (24)
His coffin was being accompanied into the Cathedral by a Guard of honour.
it was particularly sad to see his young friends and family following his Coffin,and was a poignant reminder at this time of year that all is not well in certain parts of the world,and what a sad loss of life this was.
This post is not to bring people down at Christmas but to remind us that life can be / is short and to make the most of what time we have. party on!
Rest in Peace Sapper Bond ,thanks for your service.
