Who was Cassandra?


  • In the Iliad, she is described as the loveliest of the daughters of Priam (King of Troy), and gifted with prophecy. The god Apollo loved her, but she spurned him. As a punishment, he decreed that no one would ever believe her. So when she told her fellow Trojans that the Greeks were hiding inside the wooden horse...well, you know what happened.

Love and peace to you and your mother, Beth.

Hang in there. Wishing you much strength and courage in the days ahead.

I wish your mother, you and all others the experience that grace and love will bring you.

Dear Beth:
My heart goes out to you and your mother. Stay close in these unbearably precious moments - moments that I shared with my own mother recently.

"It is only with the heart that one can see clearly: what is essential is invisible to the eye." (Antoine de Saint-Exupery.)

Thinking of you, and keeping you in my prayers. I hope that being with your mother at this incomprehensible time can be a source of blessing for you, now and in the years to come.

Holding you in my thoughts and prayers, this is a very beautiful and sad entry, much love...

Blessings and love to you, Beth. I, too, am an only child, and imagine your bond with your mother to be something like mine. Your posts, here and elsewhere, have been profound and moving.

How very heartrendingly beautiful and sad.... Love and wishes for strength and peace to you and your mother through this journey!

Oh, Beth, Beth. I have no words.

救病消滅, "May all the suffering of illness be ended." Oh Beth, you and your mother are in our prayers here.

Blessings and peace to your family
and wishing you treasured moments that only a mother and her daughter can share

Thinking of you. Thanks for letting us in there with you.

I'm here if you need to talk, sweetheart.

(We all are, actually. But you might not have everyone's phone number, and you do have mine.)

Strength.
