  • Hurrah - a thread at last!

    Now I don't have to feel like a campaign bore when posting in other threads.

    Now you can feel like a campaign bore when posting in this thread? ;P

    I personally find the 'ghost bikes' mawkish and rarely have they been installed by the victims' families whereas a large group of people coming together to say a few words, hold some banners and take a minute to reflect on the loss of a loved one is quite valuable and feedback given to me by family members indicates it's a real source of comfort to them.

    It's always key to keep things in perspective. It is of course important to deal with the emotions aroused by such incidents, ideally to convert them into some positive action.
