But Sajid Javid also said, "It is completely unacceptable for our people to be either deliberate or accidental targets, or for our streets, our parks, our towns, to be dumping grounds for poison."
Yet little Zane's death continues to be kicked into long grass when, The Nerve Agent Hydrogen Cyanide was detected in his home. The Environment Agency protected the property they own next door with gas proof membranes 4 years prior after commissioning reports which showed migrating gases that would ‘kill or cause serious injury’ to occupants, due to the close proximity of the abutting historic landfill site.
Zane should be graduating junior school today, which is another raw, and painful milestone denied him. So many lost moments, dreams, aspirations.
If you’ve lost a loved one, a milestone event such as leaving junior school trigger a new wave of grief.
Unfortunately, our culture teaches us we’re supposed to grieve quickly and move on with our lives. Zane’s parents have not only suffered the loss of their precious child, the paralysis of Zane’s father and the long drawn out fight for truth. For them, grieving hasn’t even started yet. Victim blaming, authorities protecting reputations over truth and the financial crippling from being denied legal aid 3 times, are all compounding factors.
Zane’s mum describes grief, as a sign of how much Zane was deeply loved. How Zane could not have been loved more and how every second without him is a moment lost.
Zane’s school included a memorial for Zane during the leavers assembly where in a beautiful and highly moving speech, one of his best friend read of Zane’s many achievements and how their love and friendship has no boundaries. Zane’s Eco Award was given out and the school has a beautiful eco garden dedicated to Zane called ‘Zane’s Garden’
The power of love is stronger than the love of power.
