Technically you weren’t a Derry Girl , you were born and raised in Belfast. But you made Derry your home, you became one of its daughters.
Like the show Derry Girls, witty, sharp and funny, so were you.
But what happened today is not funny, It is rotten to the core. A talented young prime example of humanity was killed. Killed by thugs who claim to fight for a cause.
There are some who say that these people don’t represent them, but not all of them are truthful in that.
I did not know you nor did I ever meet you, but that doesn’t matter for it was clear to me that you were pure in your heart and steadfast in what you believed in.
I hope that those who loved you can find solace in the knowledge that you were a decent human being. a rarity in this ever changing world.
We never met but I wish we had.
May you rest in peace and may your soul live on in those who know and love you.
RIP Lyra McKee,
They say that everyone has a book in them.
Just imagine the millions of books which were never written because of a regime that deemed millions unworthy of life, leave alone worthy of writing a book.
So many potential authors and scholars who never got a chance because of policies based on hate.
The book of the author Dasha Mojzesch, who would have written a book about man’s exploration in the universe, How they researched the effects of supernovae and what effect they had on the climate on earth.
But he never got a chance to write that book, he was killed age 5.
The book of Gyorgy Szekely, whose fairy tales set in the medieval times of Eastern Europe.Stories of dragons, knights in shiny armor, princes,princesses,kings and queens. His books read by millions around the globe.
But before he could even start thinking of writing a book he was murdered aged 15 or 16.
The book of the young brilliant scientist Sara Waas. Who chronicled her break trough research in 1960 when she was just 24. The research that not only found a cure for cancer but also for Parkinson disease.
Cures which saved the lives of so many and gave other a better quality of life.
But alas it was not to be for Sara was murdered when she was only 8.
The policies of hate by the Nazis did not only destroy the lives of so many innocent lives. It also destroyed the lives of some of their children and grandchildren. Because they destroyed potential scientists who could have discovered life altering medicines.
