A Conversation for Mourning Diana
Galaxy Babe - eclectic editor Started conversation Apr 23, 2002
If I had been there, this is what I would have written.
Diana is a hard act to follow, I can't imagine the British public loving someone else as much as we loved her.
And we did love her.
I'd go so far as say we worshipped her...
I think I admired her most because of the effect she had on people, she knew that a visit from her would perk up a dying child and it's parents.
She effectively stretched herself too thin, tried to do too much. There was always one more visit, one more charity that needs supporting, it must have been draining, an awesome responsibility to be so much in demand, and impossible to have a private life of one's own.
Not long after the funeral, the first time I went out during my convalescence, I was standing at a bus stop and thinking of her.
All of a sudden I smelled the most overpowering scene of flowers, like I'd never smelled before, I really believe it's what Heaven smells like.
I've no doubt it was her, and it made me feel quite humble.
What a shame that the whole event is now looked upon as "hysteria" when it was nothing of the sort.
Who will touch them now, indeed.
