Last month, after the death of Sinéad O’Connor, the following letter appeared in the Telegraph.
Brought tears to my eyes. ♥️
Splendid story <3 Nobody here in Ireland would be shocked. It's a lot of people who are ashamed of themselves now that we didn't show Sinead the same care and consideration. It's easy to dismiss someone while they are living. I for one am moved to do better.
Platinum gift shines,
Love's notes in the silent night,
Two souls forever.
London's visit past,
Platinum grace in her hands,
Love's song echoes on.
Sinéad's heartfelt deed,
Silent Night's Christmas embrace,
Two women's spirits.
Acts of love unfold,
In London's embrace they danced,
Souls forever linked.
This was a beautiful letter.
I loved Sinead’s music. It doesn’t surprise me that her soul was beautiful as well. Thank you for sharing it with us.
I'm a generation+ older than Sinead, and her music wasn't much on my radar. I remember, though, some people getting their knickers in a twist about I-don't-know-what. This is a reminder to me, and anyone else who cares, that the public persona of famous people and their inner, private selves are two different things, and I am not to judge. I'm thinking I need to listen to her music now.
Brilliant. Thanks so very much for sharing Shaun and Philip. Gives one hope.
Wonderful! Thank you.
I’m crying all over again for the too soon loss off this bright light, or rather, these two bright lights, from our weary world. Sinéad showed us how to bring love, wisdom and fierce compassion to the fore. May we all be as brave. Thank you for this ❤️
Made the hair follicles on my head tingle. All the feels = piloerection
wow, what a beautiful, beautiful letter. 🤍
Beautiful- thank you for sharing this
