Aurora

Mysterious heavenly beauty.

Tragic Goddess

A myth taken from the Greek by Roman poets tells that one of her lovers was the prince of Troy, Tithonus. Tithonus was a mortal, and would therefore age and die. Wanting to be with her lover for all eternity, Aurora asked Zeus to grant immortality to Tithonus. Zeus granted her wish, but she failed to ask for eternal youth to accompany his immortality, and he became forever old. Aurora turned him into a grasshopper.

And Now this.

May the Gods grant peace to the dead, comfort to the bereaved and healing to the injured.

And may we all learn whatever needs to be learned to lessen the chances of such a tragedy happening again.

  1. The tragedy in Aurora is a sobering reminder of how fragile life truly is and how seconds on the clock can separate life from death. I wish the survivors acceptance, peace and comfort in the coming months.

    For everyone, this is the time to take stock of your life and express your feelings and thoughts to the people you hold dear.
