Today, March 1, is St. David’s Day. As someone who is proud of their Welsh roots, it’s a day that is also relevant to me on a personal level.
St. David was a good man – a Christian man – who did good. There’s instantly a positive role model there from his lifestyle. He was also a teetotal vegetarian, a couple of boxes that I also tick.
Almost four hundred years after his death a poem was written that invoked the spirit of David, basically wanting to drive the Anglo Saxons out of Britain. To quote a modern phrase, you could imagine David saying, ‘not in my name’.
David drew people to him not pushed them away. Be like David. There’s more in the video below.
