Eternally wrong….about the children and the WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge

That’s the wrong order. That’s not how things should be.

Walk into any church in any village and you will probably see a child’s names on a tombstone.
It’s one of the saddest things don’t you think? It must be.

Walking thru St Denys Church in my little village, where there are records of people since the church was built in the 13C, there are, mercifully, few children’s names.

But the ones who are here are under an angel’s soft protection.
Enveloped in warm Cotswold stone.

In the gentlest light.

Remembered.

Wrong, thought about and photographed in St Denys Church, Northmoor for the WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge

    Gorgeous, as always. My photo today is a joke. Really. I have some great photos (somewhere) along these lines . . . I’ll have to go and dig them out! You’ve inspired me.

    Childhood mortality is truly hard to understand on a visceral level. The beauty of your photos give a bit of peace to that haunted feeling.

    Yes, children dying is wrong. Thanks for reminding us. At least some of them get their details etched into a gravestone, and some of those have awesome photos taken of the stone by photographers like you.

    Wonderful job. I agree, children dying should not happen in a right world. I couldn’t think of a decent interpretation, but yours hits the mark!
