Letter Writing Prompt - Remembrance
Each month we share a letter writing prompt to encourage you to put pen to paper more often.
A little suggestion of what you could write about, to get your creative juices flowing, and allow you to enjoy a relaxing mindful moment of writing.
Here we are at the height of this crunchy, cosy, chilly season. The clocks have turned, the long nights are drawing in, but there is sparkle and promise ahead. There were fireworks kicking off the month, and then follows a long run of get togethers, parties and celebration in the build up to Christmas.
But before we can fully immerse ourselves in festivities, we must first pause for a moment of reflection and remembrance.
Sunday 12th November is Remembrance Sunday. A day to remember, respect and celebrate the people who came before us, who fought for the freedom we have today. This year it feels all the more important to mark this occasion, with so much conflict in the world. It can be hard to put into words the pain we’re witnessing, but by honouring this day, we are united in our sorrow.
Perhaps you could use your letter writing skills this month to pay your respects at your local memorial service, and leave a card with a poppy by a wreath? Or send a card to someone who has directly been affected by war, to check in with them.
Going forwards, the more education and conversations we have, the better equipped we are to cope with what’s happening.
And p.s. - don't forget your poppies!
