Letting Grow

February 26, 2017


Ascending the stairway. Upwards at the AOG.

All rise:

For the past three plus decades there has been one local story that never been far from us. At the centre is a murdered child, a mother and father, and a system unable to turn suspicion into conviction once and for all.

Police couldn’t find a killer. Then they could. Then when we thought the killer was behind bars, the courts decided maybe not. But maybe.

Thirty-two years for loved ones to grieve and question! For them, and all those who have experienced the loss of a loved one, whether their questions are answered or not, the story is part of their life.

No matter the love, letting go is the hardest thing. But let go we must. Let it grow.

Wilma Derksen has written a book about letting go. The Way of Letting Go: One Woman’s Walk Toward Forgiveness http://www.mcnallyrobinson.com/event-15543/Wilma-Derksen—-Book-Launch#.WLLdKBlrnqA


I remember an interview with William Prince. He said if you want to find me goggle “William Prince Music”. If you just search my name you’ll get a bunch of images of British royalty*.

He has a pensive, subtley rational style, this boy from Peguis First Nation. I like his way. And I think we can all learn from folks like William and Wilma.

Let it grow.

William Prince – Bloom

*Someone born into massive wealth, who has been spoiled and coddled all his life. Yet someone who has also experienced the sudden loss of love.
