Talks next week
It is not going to be easy next week when talks begin at Stormont. There are huge issues to be resolved if an enduring peace is to be found that will give a future of value to all people there. Anybody who knows and loves the people of N.Ireland can only wish the talks every success and pray that God will open minds and hearts in a way to a better life together. Nobody who has lived in the situation underestimates the challenge facing these talks. My thoughts and prayers are with all people of goodwill who are seeking the way ahead together. By the Good Friday Agreement, perhaps a glimpse of a 'promised land' had appeared. If only people of all religions and none, people of every shade of political outlook could grasp another opportunity before it is too late. A.T.
