As I passed by Lockerbie on Sunday going South it as always is ever easy ! Since the Disaster in1988 it has had a huge effect on my life and those I love ! I was there with the RAF Mountain Rescue and many other Agencies! It took a huge toll on many of us and still does
This year seems for me personally better but sadly another one of my friends who was with me at the time is not well .
These were to me and many others a few days of hell and he has just recently been effected by PDSD! It has take years nearly 30 to manifest itself in him!
This is the time to keep an eye on those who were involved ! Few have got away unscarred and many just need a hug or a bit of family love at this time!
As always the 21st Of December is a hard day for those involved in the UK’s worst terrorist murders and shame on the UK that no one has been held responsible for it!
They deserve it and they gave so much!
With thoughts for :
The People of Lockerbie
Those on the Flight!
The Police, Fire and Ambulance Services
Mountain Rescue RAF and civilian Teams.
SARDA – U.K. Wide
The Volunteer Services and all those other incredible Agencies involved WRVS etc.
I have a lecture in Edinburgh in February and hope to be able to speak about what many of these unsung heroes did during these dark days in 1988. This is a chance to tell the tale of the efforts of so many who few know about in Scotland about Lockerbie!
From A pal today !
“It’s strange how much it has affected us. I was asked about Lockerbie just the other day and could feel the emotions welling inside of me. It’s been 4 years since I was struck with PTSD from this event and despite all the help I am now realising I will never be cured, none of us will. We just find ways to deal with it.”
“Hi Heavy, tomorrow will be a difficult day for many people, touched by the Lockerbie disaster on the 21st of December 1988. Small comfort, I know but MR are that happy few that have shared the misery and in doing so shored up the spirits of those profoundly affected by much of what we have seen. Together tomorrow, in spirit if nothing else. Memories of times shared with people we trust. Ross ”
This is why every year I write about it. None of you are forgotten xxx
