Welcome by The Mayor of Kirklees Cllr. David Ridgeway

Remembering is an important part of what makes us human. Justice and truth, healing and love, wisdom and learning are some of the others.
And so again this year, whilst the passage of time and the demands of other events for the world's
attention and the huge changes in the political landscape in Britain and Ireland mean that others have forgotten this tragedy….we remember.
And this memorial is a focus for our remembering. It is also a physical reminder to all who pass by this place, of the cost that those affected by the bombing have paid,
in the cause of peace making.
Jesus said, ' Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called children of God'

This is the vision of God's kingdom as told by the prophets Isaiah and Micah, who both lived in times that could be described as 'The Troubles'.
It is a vision of hope to those tempted to despair in the face of evil.
One day. ….
