Bloody Friday — Belfast 21 July 1972


I was only twelve. 
 
 I saw it on television during the school holidays.

There was the bus station I passed through every day on my way to school and would again.

It was for blue busses not red.

Except this time, they said Oxford Street station was covered in red. 
 
 One hundred and thirty injured, nine dead. 
 
 The youngest was only fourteen.
