96 souls didn't return home after going to watch an FA Cup semi-final. I watched it unfold on the TV and remember it like it was only yesterday.

Hillsborough (http://news.bbc.co.uk/sport1/hi/football/teams/l/liverpool/7997924.stm)

:redroses: RIP

Even I remember this. :(

The respect that continues for the lives lost is incredible. Never walk alone, indeed.

Rest in peace.

DW is a huge Liverpool fan and was there with her father at that match. Their party managed to get out, just. It's a very emotional day for her every year.

Oh heavens. :( It must be a very difficult day for her. :(

I remember another avid Liverpool fan who is very emotional about this day as well. :sigh: I hope they are both easing through the remembered heartache of this day.

It has also been a hard day for my DH. He was also there & managed to get pulled out. What he saw & witnessed will live with him forever. He lost one friend who was on their coach.

RIP 96 brave souls & love to all the families involved in this terrible tragedy
