A message from Perpetual

Dear loved ones of VOX

25 May 2020

Once again, I greet you all from the bottom of my heart.  It is over two months since the committee informed us of possible cancellation, of rehearsals and concerts due to covid19 and it was so.  

Having to deal with unbelievable changes happening so fast, the rules of dos and don’ts streaming our news indoors and outdoors, are having a toll on people worldwide, like we have not seen before. Sadly, the after math of days and nights of uncertainty has been affecting some people more than others. The critically ill, the numbers of deaths and loved ones left behind, cloud and shadows of the unknown creeping around the world. The heavy burden that lays on the shoulders of those savings lives, are hard to take in.

 However, life is not over for the world neither has it for VOX. The stream Freedom song concert of 29th of March couldn’t have happened at a better time.  A time with not much to say in decisions about covid19. I believe we could let the steam out by reciting or singing the freedom song part…I wish I know how it would feel to be free…Thanks to Harvey and Justin and every one that made it possible to perform.

As we have heard again and again, we are all in this together in many ways. Together we will make it through with the help of one greater than us all: one certainly greater than covid19. Pondering and waiting to see the back of it is in no doubt one of the most challenging for us all, but it will pass. And some good will come out of it all.

So, we wait for the government next instructions, hopefully to be safe and workable options for now, until something much safer comes up.  Let’s continue with guidelines thinking of each other. Stay well stay safe: while I draw your attention to the following. which are not new to you but just a humble reminder:

The Queen’s coronavirus speech transcript: ‘We will succeed and better days will come’ By (Telegraph reports 5 APRIL 2020 . 7:31PM) The Last two paragraphs says: We should take comfort that while we may have more still to endure, better days will return: we will be with our friends again; we will be with our families again; we will meet again.

But for now, I send my thanks and warmest good wishes to you all.

Please go easy with the ease lockdown. While we enjoy social distance latest information, I trust Vox member and families will still be watchful.

Love always
