My brain can’t comprehend what the Morecombe family has been through since Daniel was taken from them.  More so  because I don’t have kids of my own.

Mr and Mrs Morecombe are incredible parents to stay as strong as they have through all this. I take my hat off to them. They don’t know where their beautiful boy is. What happened to him.

But through all this, they asked us to wear red today. Red for Daniel.

I feel so helpless as a human being sometimes. I wondered if wearing red was actually going to do anything.

But then I noticed so many people wearing red  today. And we shared a knowing look as we crossed paths at work, at the servo, walking through the supermarket carpark.

We were all on the same page.

I hope that, by so many of us wearing red today,  we’ve given the Morecombe family, their extended families, their friends, neighbours, school friends, colleagues… enough strength to keep going.

Red for Daniel.

One thought on “I wore red for Daniel Morecombe today

  1. I’m a bit like you, I was thinking, ‘what will it do?’ but then I thought, if each time I see the red, I think of him and his family and pray for them during this time- then that’s something. I think if it was me, I would like people to remember my son- so I think I understand it now.
