Resting, Reflecting, Remembering

On Wednesday we visited Bury St Edmunds. A lovely day, with lots of pictures which I'll share later. Just two for now - we walked through the Abbey Gardens and then round the Cathedral. There is a Peace Garden, and this is where a service is held each Holocaust Memorial Day. The beautiful Teardrop Sculpture is 1.5 metres high.*
"chosen for its universal and natural symbolism. It reminds us of the pity of war and persecution, wherever and whenever they happen, and its reflective surfaces enable us to see ourselves and will hopefully prompt us to reflect upon the part we can play in opposing humanity's inhumanity, and supporting those who have suffered from it"
In the Garden Of Remembrance, a simple stone is inscribed with words from Psalm 46.
The gardens were so beautiful and peaceful. This is definitely a place I would like to visit again.
*If you look at the picture, you can see Bob on the right in his navy sweatshirt and jeans, I'm next to him, in the centre, with a bright red scarf. 
As we come closer to the Teardrop, we become involved. It is a very thought provoking piece of art...


  1. Oh, I do like that teardrop sculpture and the reasoning behind it!
