Hillsborough

by Steve

25 years on from such an awful tragedy and it still feels impossible to fully comprehend or articulate anything about the event. 96 people going to a football match and not returning is terrible enough. That they were failed by those who should have kept them safe, is worse. That the day would be followed by lies and cover-ups from those in authority is unbearable. I guess all we can hope now is that the families, friends and loved ones of those who died, along with those who survived that day, will finally see some sort of justice from the current independent inquest. And that hopefully that will bring them at least some degree of peace.

We must never forget.
