A RECORD OF THE QUEEN’S VISIT TO SUNNY CORK
We have to remember that the past is the past, and that we can can all make a positive step forward in the right direction. We can use history to learn from, to seek guidance and understanding, but we must always choose to move forward toward progress, toward harmony and toward acceptance and forgiveness.
Some people have a tremendous symbolic power, just like the Queen and we can all learn from her example in embracing the Irish people and the Irish culture. It may not have been an easy step for her to take, and certainly she will have been criticised by some factions, but the power of her visit can be clearly seen to sweep all that aside, evidenced the tremendous goodwill engendered by her visit.
