The shortest day of the year
I looked in on Lockerbie Ice Rink today to see a little of the under-21 curling competition that's taking place this weekend. The rink, of course, played a part twenty-five years ago, serving as a temporary morgue in the aftermath of the disaster. It's always encouraging to see young people enjoying this great sport, but it struck me that all on the ice were not even born in 1988. Twenty-five years ago is like yesterday to me, as it is I'm sure to all of those who lost loved ones, or who were touched by the disaster in other ways. I'll be having my own minute's silence this evening and thinking of them.
Season's Greetings to everyone!
