Sick Minds

I've just read that there was a bomb-threat today at Eniskillen, the town in Northern Ireland where a bomb killed 11 people at a Remembrance Day parade 30 years ago.
This horrific event gave rise to the Peace People, whose founders, Betty Williams and Mairead Corrigan, were later awarded the Nobel Peace Prize.
I just cannot understand the mentality of someone who could make a threat of this kind.

Oh no - I hope we won't see a return to those awful days. I know there's still a lot of organised crime and thuggery in parts of Northern Ireland, thanks to the paramilitary idiots, but it's a lot better than it was.

Hope you don't mind - I've tagged you with a meme over at Siani's Pot-Pourri.
