What the day will hold

I sit in the relative quietness of the Derry Journal newsroom.
In a short time this will turn into one of the busiest days in our history.
This afternoon the Saville Report into the events of Bloody Sunday will be published. As a much younger reporter I covered the hearings as they took place in Derry's Guildhall.
I know how important what happens today will be to the people of Derry - mostly of course to the families of those who died on that horrible, devastating day.
This morning I walked with the families as they made their way to the Guildhall and the sense of grief really did seem raw and palpable.

I only hope that the truth will out.
