DREAMS ASPIRE TO REACH THE SKY (WHEN DOVES FLY)

a poem by William Willis, Scotland

Were the children watching ?
As your dreams did reach the sky.
Were YOUR FINGERS pointing upwards ?
Thinking of those who had died.

Did you feel their soul beside you ?
As you played your way to gold.
Dunblane's shining light.
From THAT TRAGEDY bestowed.

Did elation fill their hearts ?
As your anthem it was sung.
With their teacher right beside them.
Seeing the happiness it brung.

A town that has been tainted.
By the actions of one man.
Is now basking in the glory.
I hope the world understands.

Faster ! Higher ! Stronger !
Let us see a brand new morn.
Say a prayer for world peace.
And mend the wings that have been torn.



AS PER OLYMPIAN RICHARD'S 22nd INSPIRATIONAL CHALLENGE TITLE



Note
----
On 13th March 1996 a small town in Scotland suffered a terrible massacre of 16 innocents schoolchildren and their teacher by a crazed gunman.

A pupil in the school that day was Andy Murray (tennis player)

Andy does not speak much of this terrible day and
Scotland does not produce many sportsmen of this calibre.

I hope the town of Dunblane are joyous at Andy's acheivement at winning Olympic Gold.

He is our SPECIAL ONE !

Were the children watching ?

I am sure they were.
