Part of the prize was a trip to Orlando, Florida, USA to attend the famous seminars underway this week and sponsored by The Dodge Company. Irene took out the award with a 3000-word essay titled Show me the way a nation cares for its dead. In it she says “mass loss of life pleads with us as a nation to come together and share the emotions of grief for the families involved ... we are asked on memorial days to obtain in our day a minute’s silence at a set time to coincide with funerals or memorial services”. “A minute’s silence often in one’s head represents a long time, not only of the moment that is being shared, but of one’s own passed losses. Silence brings respect and, with respect, comes the nation’s care.” In an interview with OHT, she says people are more aware of the significance of a minute’s silence because disasters have higher profiles in the media. “Disasters were treated in a different light in the past, for example the Wahine sinking. But from Erebus [the Air New Zealand Mt Erebus crash] on, death has been more in our faces and is treated in a different light.” LEARNING CURVE: Funeral director Irene Morton has travelled to the US to get an insight into how things are done there. Photography Marianne Kelly THE saying goes that nothing is certain but death and taxes.
