David Levy – Such a Loss – Apr 19

It is so very sad to bear witness to the passing of an exceptional person who had the forethought to propose change that could change the world.

That person was Polly Higgins and, at an age of 50 years, she has left this world bereft of her sincere intellect and dazzling campaign to deliver an international law of Ecocide.

Others can write a more moving eulogy but I was fortunate enough to have heard her speak in the flesh and be moved on a personal level to say we are the poorer for her passing. In my Christian thinking I hope she can reach out for help from God because right now we really need it.

I send those who knew Polly my empathy for the loss and hope that you remain inspired by her life and the person she was. In particular Deborah Wright who is engaged on a journey of her own.
