Jo Cox was a heroine of multiculturalism. A woman who stood up for refugees, the brutalised and displaced people of Syria. But most importantly she stood against hate. So yes, we still can use the word great today. But not for our much maligned country, but for Jo - a beacon of hope.
This week the people of Dunblane, Scotland will again share in the immense pain caused by the shootings in a school. Many people affected will share their experiences and some will relive that trauma. So why is it that in terms of these evil and tragic acts of violence cause us to come together to commemorate and open up our thoughts again, for some creating great pain and dividing many people on how we should remember or forget.
