A Sad Day

By cooky
This monument is tucked away at the bottom of the local woodland that gives so many people so much pleasure. Norris Bradbury was a good man and at the time of his gift would not have envisaged another World War after the War to end all wars.

The news today is dreadful for the people of Ukraine and Russia and for us all. A shadow has fallen over the world, not just Eastern Europe. I hope and pray that reason prevails.
