I was watching the BBC earlier and the Rememberance Sunday commemoration at the cenotaph. They were filled with dignity, respect and solidarity. I think we can look to these sort of events as we look towards the centenary of the 1916 rising in less than four years time. We can look at the unity across Britain and beyond in remembering past conflicts. It was a wonderful outpouring of respect from a nation.
Can we come together as a nation in a similar way and maybe use a symbol that could universally remember the rising and not be divisive. I for one hope we do mark 1916 properly and its not hi jacked for other purposes by SF/IRA to legitimise the Provo murder campaign. Many don't like the "Brits" but we have to admit they do know how to put on a brilliant show.
