BLUE : A gift from my best friend
Represents friends, family and neighbours across the globe thinking and praying for peace in the world.
WHITE: A candle from the Christian Community of Beloc in the French Pyrenees.
Represents France and all its people. Our thoughts and prayers are with you.
RED: An tiny and much loved ethnic vase
Represents peace loving Muslims – in fact any other faith whose people wish for all to live in harmony, health and happiness.
On the hearth are poignant reminders of previous wars – on the left is a spitfire from WW2 and on the right is a pot crafted from a WW1 shell by my Great grandfather and a poppy lies between. May we learn the lessons of those conflicts and strive for a peaceful solution.
Let the silence at 11am be felt throughout the world in unity.
