Truth. A lesson to learn

Thirty-eight years and four months after the Bloody Sunday in Derry, British Prime Minister has admitted it was a massacre carried out by English troops against harmless people.
This is a big step in the direction of recovering the truth about that shameful page , it will be even bigger if the culprits of that massacre will be now prosecuted.

In any case, the speech held by the Prime Minister is a strong and meaningful act that is in favor of peace.
Yes, because there can’t be enduring peace without the building of a common conscience, there can’t be a Nation without the collective awareness of responsibilities from all parties.

This is the lesson to be learned from rulers who consider the state as a battlefield. And this is happening in many ways and in many places, much closer than we might expect.

My rational praise to the British Prime Minister, my fraternal empathy to all people of Ireland.

I think that the Minister's speech is something that seems to prove the maturity of new-established government. The strange couple C&C (Cameron/Clegg) may take fresh air to Great Britian and even to Europe. Let's see what's going on over the next few months. New elections soon or a permanent agreement between Tories and Libdem? Who knows.
