“Daddy, Katie didn’t take off her shoes”.
The new trampoline was being treated with the utmost respect. The two girls were strictly enforcing the ‘no shoes’ rule – I’m not too sure about the ‘one at a time’ and the ‘no somersaults’ rules – but shoes were definitely a ‘no, no’
Several times during the following few days I was reminded of the burning bush, the taking off of shoes and sacred ground. We awoke on Tuesday morning to the news that a body had been found on a piece of green space in Cherry Orchard. A shotgun lay nearby. Gradually throughout the morning, news trickled through. Finally our worst fears were confirmed. Glenn, a twenty-five year old past pupil of The Life Centre, had ended his own life in the early hours of the morning.
