karen k Aberfan disaster 40th anniversary - 21 Oct 1966 (32) RE: BS: Aberfan 40th anniversary 21/10/66 19 Oct 06


My friend from Aberfan was with me in Connecticut when we got a phone call about the mudslide. Carol's two brothers and a sister were in the school and lost their lives. It was a terrible tragedy. Two years ago I was visiting some friends in England and they took me to Aberfan. We walked through the cemetery and the garden. I found the children's graves and saw their names on a memorial cross in the cemetery. It was a very powerful, moving and emotional experience for me. I've always felt that I needed to go there and 38 years later I finally did. Thanks for starting this thread brad.
