THIS HAND THAT BRINGS THE FOOTPRINT OF THE PATH

Death, like birth, changes one's perception of life before these events happen. They remind us that our body is not eternal.

Have you ever thought that one of the last things we do when we accompany a person at the end of life is to hold their hand to comfort them in this process. This hand that worked for you, comforted you by caressing you, loved you to touch, took your face telling you (I love you), gave you the pat on the back to encourage you, you Watched when you were vulnerable, protected you, at one point, blew a kiss with your hand and greeted you with a wave of your hand as you left. What about the hands of people who would have left too young suddenly without being able to say goodbye? Think of the meaning of the hand of a sick child who tells you, by taking your hand, to stay near me or that little being who from his birth takes your hand to tell you that he needs you; fragile hands that hold yours to tell you I love you. Moreover, those who offer their body to science could offer more comforting funerals to their loved ones, despite the absence of a body. What could be said about those who have never known a father, a mother, a grandfather, a grandmother, a brother or a sister? Except that he could, thanks to the inheritance of the handprint of a loved one, touch it in real time. Allowing, through a tangible artefact, to have the impression of a real presence and to feel it close to them. In conclusion, our relatives who die can give us a last goodbye thanks to this artifact of the imprint of his hand that will succeed forever as a tangible sign of his passage on earth.


The hand is a universal symbol in all denominations and beliefs. Why would it not be normal to find this symbol as a legacy of our passage here bye bye?
