Hasek Bobby Sands (130* d) RE: Bobby Sands 29 Dec 99


Dear Neil, Your thread on Bobby Sands is by far one of the most inspiring pieces touched on in a long while. I am a citizen of the United States and a member of the world and what Bobby Sands ( and his fellow inmates) did to publicize the issues and conditions on political prisoners of war in Northern Ireland was very heroic. All too often we sweep away true history to concentrate on the public indescretions of our own president or subjects which sell newspapers. I have been contemplating for the past 4 months , the writing of a song about Bobby Sands and Long Kesh Prison and your thread has now given me the direction and motivation to complete this. Happy New Year to you and thank you for allowing all of us to see ( in my opinion ) a true revolutionary.

Sincerely yours,

Mike Strobel
