Remembrance sunday

It’s Totensonntag tomorrow. This was taken around Peter’s Church.

Why do funerals always have to be in glorious sunshine? In movies, they always set them in rain to emphasise the sadness and the hopelessness. In my opinion, the stark contrast of a bright shining sun makes it even harder.

As Farin Urlaub sings:

Traurig sein hat keinen Sinn
Die Sonne scheint auch weiterhin
Das macht den Schmerz ja so brutal
Die Sonne scheint als wär es ihr egal

Das ist ja grad die Schweinerei
Die Sonne scheint als wäre nichts dabei

(There’s no use being sad, the sun shines on, this is what makes the pain so brutal, the sun keep shining as if it didn’t care, what a baseness – the sun keeps shining as if it was nothing).
