Sunrise 18 September - Bernard France
Firstly, I would like to thank Hanna and the Freedom Festival team for the opportunity I have had this morning. Thanks also to Meg my able Companion.
Well, what can I say? It’s a really special way to celebrate my 77th birthday. To see the sun edging above the low clouds and then to disappear into more clouds only to appear later in a cloud-free sky was a feeling that all is well.
My memories will be of the graffiti on the wall of Shotwells saying COVID 19 to which someone has added 84! The siren from a Fire Engine racing along Alfred Gelder Street and into Carr Lane. I didn’t see any sign of a fire. And lastly, my wife , two of my children and their children with a banner saying, ‘We Papa’ and waving. I had to wave back.
Thanks for the memory!
