Dunblane

It’s the 10 Anniversary.  One of the events that you remember where you were when you heard.  I was sitting on the quayside in Belfast waiting to take my daughter to visit universities in England and Scotland.  My child – safe – with me.  One feels the need to mark and remember – but a desire not to trespass.  One of the parents said tonight that he hoped to ‘move on but not forget’.  That sounds very healthy to me.  People say that time heals – but I don’t really believe it.  Sometimes it makes the feelings of loss more acute and brings to the surface damage hidden at the time.  I visited the Cathedral just before Christmas – saw the memorial and was deeply moved by it.  Remember the families in your prayers
