I’ve just come across this activity, Day of Reflection, and the associated website. Well done all those involved. Sadly, I missed the detail of this 21.6.07 event and so didn’t take advantage of what was on offer yesterday (DOH!) but I found it really useful visiting the website to-day. Not least because it shows that there are other people throughout Northern Ireland and beyond trying to build a peaceful future by looking at the past. You might want to take a look.
I’d love to hear how others got on and what form their shared activities took. Did anyone run an event? Did many turn up? Was it a success?
Oh… if you’re interested in sharing some of your stories of the past you might like to contribute to these Talkni items:-
- The Troubles: “I could write a book….” – starting a record of stories from the troubles. The more we share the quicker will be the healing.
- Stories – you can’t take them with you! – recording our oral history before it is lost!
