Doodle of the day does Le Mans: Le Mans 1955 Pierre Levegh driving the Mercedes 300S - a race that would play out the biggest Motor Racing tragedy of all time. Levegh would be killed as his car went airborne over the back of the Healey of Lance Macklin as he had swerved to avoid a slowing D Type of Mike Hawthorn. As his car plugged into a ditch and rested on a safety barrier - the engine and front axle cut through the packed crowd like a scythe - killing over 80. A very dark day at Le Mans for so many. Tragedy so often escapes our understanding - why do such things happen? How is it ever fair? Where is ‘God’ in all of it? How does he allow this? I would love to have answers - but I have questions too. I would love to know the reasons, where God was on that day (and so many other days). Sometimes there are no answers - sometimes God is silent - but it does not mean he is not there. It does not mean he is not loving or doesn’t care - my own experience, and the experiences others have shared tells me that. But there are no easy answers and so I am not going to try to give one - I can only hold on to (sometimes just by my finger nails) the one who is with me even in the valley of the shadow of death. Prayers for all affected by tragedy - for hope even in despair. Prayers too for all racing and watching at Le Mans this coming weekend - for safety and protection. #blessings #scribblingvicar
