17 years since Dunblane, and I still don’t quite have the words to describe it.
No, I’m lucky enough not to have known anyone there, and I didn’t live in the area at that time, but even in Glasgow, we took it personally. This kind of thing doesn’t happen in Scotland, you know? And certainly not in a little town like Dunblane. I still remember where I was when I heard, just wasting time in the Uni snackbar, when the serving ladies told me. Word spread quickly, and almost everyone knows someone who was affected by it.
I don’t have anything deep and meaningful to say here, I just had to start a thread and not let the day go unmarked. We remember.
