Today, 23rd March 2022, marks the second ‘Day of Reflection’, as we remember all those who have lost their lives to Covid. This day is the second anniversary of when the UK went into a lockdown as scientists worked to find a vaccine against Covid-19.
A minute’s silence will be held in the Scottish Parliament today at 12 noon.
Prominent buildings and landmarks will also be lit up across Scotland.
Nicola Sturgeon, First Minister of Scotland said:
“The National Day of Reflection provides an important opportunity for us all to come together, to support one another and remember those we have lost.”
Health and care organisations which are taking part in the day of reflection are asking people to:
- Observe a minute’s silence at midday, wearing a daffodil pin if you would like to
- Shine a light at 8pm, or display flowers in your window
- Visit a Wall of Reflection or remember a loved one in your own way
- Join one of seven online talks and panel discussions
- New for 2022, an interactive online map will display a UK-wide network of Walls of Reflection where people can go to remember the loved ones they have lost and where the local community can come together to support those who are grieving.
