Thought for today:

‘It’s so much darker when a light goes out than it would have been if it had never shone.’

— John Steinbeck

My thoughts today are dominated by the UK death toll from Covid-19.

As we pass a grim milestone, I think that every single death is a grim milestone.

Round numbers fascinate us and so we mark them as significant.

I find myself wondering if this somehow diminishes the respect we pay to those that grieve.

The one-hundred thousand UK deaths are each a personal tragedy for a family.

Often compounded by the limits placed on contact and funeral sizes, preventing some form of final parting.

No doubt there will be a retrospective inquiry about the UK response.

For now though my thoughts are with all the people whose loss makes up the grim statistic.

Including those I know personally.
