Remembrance Day

Today is a sad and special day; Pregnancy and Infant Loss Remembrance Day. This affects so many people and yet is so often a solitary, unrecognised loss. These are the people who are often invisible and in pain during celebrations such as Mother’s and Father’s day. Rose has experienced this loss, so it’s something very meaningful to us as a couple. Little rituals like this can bring a most private pain out of silence and into public awareness, can give an opportunity for people who often have no graves to visit, no family awareness of their sorrow, sometimes not even names for souls they have deeply loved. Tonight we light a candle in remembrance of the ones we lose, and with compassion for those who grieve.
