I just read your reflection "Rising from the Dead - a young teacher's perspective.".
There was a lot in there. But one comment along the way was especially pertinent to me just now - the comment about the love and compassion in the song "Crash and Burn."
Last week I went to a funeral of a young woman, just 19, who had died of a degenerative disease. (Sadly she has a brother just a few years younger who also has the same disease.) She was diagnosed with this disease when she was just 5 and has lived with increasing disability since then.
Her funeral was one of the most beautiful I have been to. It was held on the family farm. Quite a few people spoke very movingly about her, and at the end, dozens of pink balloons were let go into the rural sky. Her brother organised the music for the funeral and one of the choices was "Crash and Burn". It was humbling to realise that two young people, faced with such a harsh reality in life, could enjoy music that had such a compassionate message.
