Sadly engaging

It is a rare moment when you tune into a radio show and as you have parked your car you sit and are stunned by a song or even some narrative.
That moment or reflection point, as I call it happened to me last night, whilst listening to the closing minutes of BBC Radio 4’s Last Word.  The programme is hosted by John Wilson and it tells the life stories of people who have died recently.
During the last 10 minutes of the programme the poet Fred D’Aguiar who teaches creative writing at Virginia Tech read his poem ‘Elegy’ reflecting on the massacre of 32 students and staff. You can hear it for the next 7 days from this link.

It is emotional but also reflects
