Who was Cassandra?


  • In the Iliad, she is described as the loveliest of the daughters of Priam (King of Troy), and gifted with prophecy. The god Apollo loved her, but she spurned him. As a punishment, he decreed that no one would ever believe her. So when she told her fellow Trojans that the Greeks were hiding inside the wooden horse...well, you know what happened.

She nurtured her private garden. I love women like that.

Such strength to survive so much loss of family and home, and still have strength to live a new life of peace, love and beauty. She's still a strong presence and example for you and J and others who knew her - how wonderful.

What an impressive and moving portrait you've drawn of her, in a few strokes. Thank you Beth.

Her quiet courage, not only to move so far from all she knew, but to decide to enjoy life and participate in it despite her losses, moves me greatly.
