Check out my story for some of the messages people have left on the peace wall. There's something about a collection of powerful thought that makes standing around in the rain for hours to take it all in worth it.

Day 115: SIGNING THE PEACE WALL
I am not sure I can articulate into words what I learned and saw today...so I won’t try.  I have led a very charmed life, for sure.  Most of the people I know, have had as well.  I’m not talking about the highs and lows of life, I’m talking about not having to worry about bombings and shootings.  Here’s a few statistics for you:  More than 3,500 people were killed in the conflict, of whom 52% were civilians, 32% were members of the British security forces, and 16% were members of paramilitary groups.  Think of that...52% were in the wrong place at the wrong time.  My guide, Paul, literally grew up right beside the Peace Wall.  I think he was very impartial in telling me the history of the conflict.  I won’t tell you what side he grew up on, because it doesn’t really matter.  Tragedy befell both sides.  That in itself is absolutely heartbreaking. (Deep sigh). I’m really glad to have had the opportunity to take this tour today.  It was a very somber day.  I think I’m just going to go pet puppies tomorrow.  #somberday #northernireland #tragic
