    Heartfelt gratitude and awe for Bobby and the other Hunger Strikers. The bravest men who ever lived.

    Let us not forget these brave young men that loved Ireland. Margret T. and Ronald R. were the real bad people here, God Bless Bobby and all his friends.

    I am not Irish, but Bobby Sands, as an accidental hero and Irishman, inspires me.
    Such is.

Got something to say?
