This time last week

Life is precious and we are so very, very fragile….

On the motorway on the way into Brussels this time last week all the traffic suddenly ground to a halt and as the cars began to cross the carriageways in front of us into the right hand lane it became clear that a nasty car accident had just occurred in the road in front of us.

It was apparent that there was nothing we could do to help, other than hope and pray that no-one was badly hurt, but as we drove by and saw the terrible state of one of the vehicles in particular it was a sobering reminder of just how fragile we are.
