Omagh, ten years on

Ten years since the Omagh bombing my heart is full of sadness, love for those affected and anger towards those who killed twenty nine people, two unborn children and the physical and mental suffering endured by many others.

Two quotes seem to summarise how I feel today;
We must concentrate not merely on the negative expulsion of war but the positive affirmation of peace.

At the centre of non-violence stands the principle of love.
