I have always been proud to be a Glaswegian and never more so than this weekend.
Its absolutely tragic what happend at The Clutha pub on Friday night at 10:25pm where a helicopter crash landed on the pub full of revellers enjoying a pay day drink.
I sat up most of the night, Watching the events unfold. Witnessing how people forgot about their own safety and went back in to the pub to save their fellow customers or how people passing by ran to the pub rather than ran away from it having saw that a helicopter had crashed landed disregarding the possibility if an explosion.
It says so much about the Glasgow people.
The event is tragic for all involved and Glasgow being a connected village, everyone knows someone that was there, either in the bar or had been in the bar etc.
It was sad to watch, but inspiring at the same time and I’m proud to be a Glaswegian.
When people get such bad press for being selfish, shallow, self-obsessed, greedy, vain and uncaring, it reminded me of how human we all are, how vulnerabile life is and that its all the more precious because of it.
My heart goes out to everyone who lost a loved one in this tragic event, I’m certain that their families and friends will rally round to provide the love and support they need.
May the deceased rest in peace.
