Jo Cox and a Father's First Thoughts

"She was a human being. And she was perfect." So said Jo Cox's sister, Kim, bravely struggling to voice the feelings of a broken family. Since Thursday's tragic events, floral tributes have arrived by the arm-fulls, while MPs united in Parliament today to pay tribute to a woman whose record on human rights, on fighting for the vulnerable, on standing up for the interests of her constituents was truly inspirational. As a nation mourned and as politicians paraded, Jo's husband Brendan took their two precious children on a Father's Day camping trip so that they would wake up to bird song. I did not know Jo - but I rather think she would have been glad that her husband's first thoughts were to keep those little ones focused on the beauty of our world - not its darker side.
