Barely two weeks after the attack in Manchester and we're watching another Islamist attack unfold in the UK.
This time the tragedy hits home for us here in British Columbia, as one of the victims, thirty-year old Chrissy Archibald, was originally from Castlegar. As described in the statement from Humanists UK, Chrissy's values and commitments reflect some of the best in humanity.
The only named victim so far is Canadian woman Chrissy Archibald, who lived her life according to a belief ‘that every person was to be valued and respected’, who spent much of her adult life volunteering to help the homeless, who was a contributor to human happiness and welfare and wellbeing.
Our thoughts are with her friends and family here in BC, as well with those of the other victims of this tragedy.
Life member Fran Hodgkinson dies
It's with great sadness that I report that BC Humanist Association Fran Hodgkinson died on Thursday, May 25th after a fall.
Fran lived on the North Shore and was a regular attendee at our Vancouver Sunday meetings until her health declined in recent years. She was a long supporter of the BCHA and our work.
If you would like to pass along your condolences to her family, you can send them to me. A memorial is being planned for close friends and family later in the summer.
