Peace: A dedicated poem: RIP Drummer Lee Rigby



peace poem

Written for the murdered soldier, DRUMMER LEE RIGBY. RIPDrummer Lee Rigby


It was a sad day in, Britain, when this young man was attacked, and butchered in a  London street. So many witnessed the event, and it touched the hearts of many. It was a racial attack. The country is struggling to come to terms with the event, and now, more than ever, folk pray for peace, and calm.

My condolences to his family.

  1. Lovely, Glynis. We remember him in Canada, too.

      Yvonne. It is heartbreaking, and I think the world is shocked.

      • We’ve had a couple of threats here, too. Fanaticism – all kinds of it – is so divisive and destructive. Canada is mostly pretty accepting and safe, so when we found out there were plots here that could have been fatal we were shocked, too. It strikes at our core beliefs, which is what makes it so dangerous. The result is less trust and less acceptance and tolerance – which can only lead to further alienation of groups that would normally see eye to eye. This is how wars start.

    Yvonne, so long as the extremists keep calm, the country will unite. The Muslim community is just as shocked, and condemn the two men, and their mentors, as much as the Christian community. I am not religious, more spiritual, but I do pray that the majority remain calm.

  3. It is an awful time indeed.

    Your poem is beautiful Glynis.

  4. Beautifully done, Glynis. And such a tragedy.
