In Memoriam

I don't normally do this, especially as I really don't like/follow (delete as applicable) football, but there are two things that are completely different.

Hillsborough Disaster

Bradford City Fire Disaster

Hillsborough happened 20 years ago today (15th April 1989), and in memoriam of that fateful day 20 years ago (though I was only nearly two at the time), I make this post. Thousands of people will be holding a 2 minute silence in 6 minutes time, the exact time the match was cancelled. I'm not a football fan, but I'll be joining in with the silence, because things like this shouldn't happen, regardless of who it is that's involved.
