I started and stopped plenty of strips before I landed on this. This weekend we have been mourning with our muslim community in Christchurch and all over the country. I’d just like to let us take a breath and remember the families that lost so much on Friday.
On Saturday we visited my Grandma in the retirement home she’s in occasionally. She told us the nurses there were pretty shaken by what had happened the day before and were doing what they could to support each other. The old folks were doing their best to not be too much trouble. Grandma has a whiteboard to communicate with, due to her hearing loss, and the girls would occasionally draw things on it.
Grandma hated the thought of having to rub their drawings off, so asked if they could draw in her journal instead. So they did.
Flowers encircled a simple message “Love U”.
