I wanted to take this opportunity to highlight quite an important date. The Thirteenth of March which is Tomorrow and I wanted to ask a favour. The Thirteenth of March 1996 was a horrendous day in Scotland probably infact the whole of the UK if not the world. On that day a vile evil creature entered a School in Dunblane and murdered 16 children and one adult the cildren were aged 5-6 years old. every single child in the class that was attacked was injured in someway..however 16 lost their lives. This is the tenth year anniversary of that horrendous day, I thought it would be nice to remember the children that were so cruelly struck down before they had a chance to truly live. I will be lighting a candle in my lving room window tomorrow as a mark of remembarence and respect for those lives as is the tradition of the families who lost their loved ones. I would ask that some of you do the same and when asked why let people know that it is to remember those children. I have attached a photograph and the names of the children murdered and a poem.
The Bairns of Dunblane no kiss on the cheek for the souls of the slain no bugle to announce their sweet smiles no fanfare for the bairns of dunblane
no warmth of the sun or the wind or the rain no jerusalem in this pleasant isle no kiss on the cheek for the souls of the slain
no coming of age, just the hurt and the pain no one to beget or beguile no fanfare for the bairns of dunblane no birdsong at morning or summer evening refrain no grinning or glint of a smile no kiss on the cheek for the souls of the slain
no friend in the playground just them on their ane no sweetness that he could defile no fanfare for the bairns of dunblane no death in the memory as it shall never wane no slow walk with a love down the aisle no kiss on the cheek for the souls of the slain no fanfare for the bairns of dunblane
