20 Years On, We'll Never Forget

20 Years On, We'll Never Forget

Bill Shankly once famously said 'Football is not a matter of life and death ..... it's more important than that'. But he was wrong, and given the gift of hindsight, I'm sure he would agree.

20 years ago today, 96 football supporters lost their lives in a tragedy that shocked the world. And today we must articulately and respectfully offer our sympathies to everyone who suffered the effects of what happened on that fateful day.

I, however don't feel equipped to adequately portray the feelings of grief, sadness, sympathy and anger that many are feeling today, in words, so I will simply ask for people to reflect quietly and offer a moments thoughts to all involved, and remind you to Never forget..

Thank you.

The Vital Arsenal Team.

Absolutely. I'll never forget that day, nor the humanity of it. To all the Liverpool "family" from football fans everywhere, YNWA.

History revels in the constant rehash of shared experiences. Liverpool has a rich tapestry of history, both the good times(which they enjoy alone) and the bad times such as Hillsboro, which our common humanity demands that we share with them. May God Himself console the grieving families as they are again reminded of their losses. Any fan of wharever hue must realise that, but for the amazing grace of God, that could have been anyone of us!

Commiserations indeed, let's also not forget those who died at Valley Parade, Ibrox, Heysel and only three weeks ago in Abidjan.

Indeed Tim, next year sees the 25th anniversary of the Bradford city fire disaster, and will be remembered as sympathetically, especially in my neck of the woods.

RIP the 96. May they be remembered, the truth told, lessons learned.
