Aberfan 1966

50 Years may of passed
For those who lived on
The nightmares still last
Friends and teachers gone
In their houses they were kept
To ease the pain of those who wept.
Grief is something we cannot span
Sending prayers to Aberfan.

    Such a terrible tragedy, Willow.
    I remember that day so well as we heard the news here in Ireland. It must be impossible for family, friends and the community to manage to bear it.

    Sadly its one of those key points that one remembers, our head told us in assembly at school, I think what made it worse was that they were children and so seemed more real.

    Dear Willow. Thank you so much for sharing my tribute to those that lost their lives in Aberfan and for writing a very moving tribute.

    So sad. All those children and their teachers. 144 people. 116 kids from 7 to 10. So awful. How does a town survive something so ghastly? Some kids saved. Others gone. No justice to it. I’ve never seen coal tips on mountain tops in this country. A very good thing, too.
