Tuesday 23 March 2021 is the anniversary of the first lockdown. Organised by Marie Curie we are supporting the National Day of Reflection, it’s a day when we can reflect on our collective loss, support those who’ve been bereaved, and hope for a brighter future. It’s a day when we can remember those who have died and those who care for the many people who have been affected this year. We can also share hope for the future.
The past year has been a time of significant loss in all sorts of ways. Many people have been bereaved. Whatever the cause, every death has been devastating for the people left behind. All of us have lost routines, including visits to Snoezelen, and ways of living and loving that before the pandemic we simply took for granted.
On the National Day of Reflection, we will be thinking back over this past year. We will tie some yellow ribbons, pause for a minute’s silence at noon, and at 8pm, we will be lighting candles at our homes. We will be remembering everyone we have lost from the Snoezey family this year. And hoping for a brighter future.
