    Bobby and his fellow hunger strikers showed how callous and brutal the British Government is by giving up their young
    Lives for what they believed in.
    I remember this on the TV when I was a young man thinking
    surely she will not allow these brave men to die.
    I was in awe yet full of sadness and that feeling will never leave me.26+6=1.

Got something to say?
