Take a moment to reflect

Have you ever thought how strange it is that we live through historic events and only in the future do we realise how important and indeed seminal that certain events were.

In my lifetime I remember Neil Armstrong - the first man to walk on the moon - I remember the death of Winston Churchill - England winning the world cup - the assassination of John Kennedy.

Today the world mourns the loss of Pope John Paul and we should feel happy that we have lived through his time as Pope.

I am not a Catholic but one cannot help but be touched by the affection shown to this man regardless of one's religious beliefs - or indeed if you do not have religious beliefs.
