Our school community will be honoring Joshua in two outward ways.
On October 24 at 11:15 the students, faculty and staff, parents and friends of Lake Champlain Waldorf School are invited to gather around the labyrinth at the Turtle Lane campus to partake in a celebration of Joshua’s life and a commemoration of his death. We will be singing a song written by Alice Damon (Grandmother of Sunny and Magnolia Francis). You can download this song off our website to learn to sing with us at the ceremony if you wish (A Song for Joshua). The proceeds go directly to a scholarship fund that Joshua’s parents (Christina and Jason) set up after he died to benefit children who otherwise would not be able to attend our school. Here are the words for A Song for Joshua:
Put a circle of white light around you
Put a crown of bright stars on your head
May the fountain of life flow all through you
Put to rainbow wings at your back
We are children of the mother
We are children of the father
This song was written to sing in a round. But because my children are so young we just sing it as is. The recording is in a round.
If you are planning to join in singing a song for Joshua on October 24th, please R.S.V.P to Brenda Baker.
We will continue this meeting every Thursday evening until the December holiday break. These Thursday evenings are for Joshua as well as for anyone who has crossed the threshold; so if you have lost a loved one in your life and would like to honor them in this way please know that you are welcome to join us.
Please hold the Moore family in your hearts as they navigate this difficult and beautiful time of the year.
Blessings to you and yours.
Sueanne Campbell, Kindergarten Teacher
