Sheye Lyr Add: Candle in the Wind (Elton John) (58* d) RE: Goodbye, England's Rose 08 Sep 97

I understand and even agree with most comments here. Royalty on the whole is of no significance to me. Media smut: I choose not to participate.

What I see as being the real tragedy here is that two young boys lost the most important person in their lives long before nature intended. Whatever training they have to handle the roles life has given them, they are still kids, and she was still their Mum. Her unconditional love to her children, her guidance, smile, etc. will not be replaced and that hole is deep and painfully dark.

Whether Diana was the people's princess or your own sister, it hurts when people die in such a senseless way.

This became personal to me when my 5-year-old son, having heard of the tragedy through television, thought it was his Aunty Diana that had died, and it was only by over- hearing a conversation he was having with a friend that I discovered his misunderstanding.

Thanks for giving me the space to say my bit. Sheye
