R.I.P Jo Cox

I have no clever words today, just deep sadness and a desire to honour Jo Cox.

How can such goodness inspire so much hatred?

I exhort my brothers and sisters of Britain, and all over the world, to turn away from anger and join hands in love.

Rest in Peace Jo, your time on this earth was foreshortened, but you leave a legacy of kindness.

      1. We had that happen here in 2011. Gabrielle Giffords, a Congresswoman from Arizona, was shot on January 8th in her district. It didn’t kill her, but left her with severe brain damage. Cox kind of reminded me of her. Her husband is an astronaut.
