For those of us who only heard bits and pieces of the "troubles" this was our first step into truly understanding the conflict and the pain. For those living here, it was a step towards peace and healing. A great, if not somewhat troubling, stop on our trip.

As a visitor to Derry- this memorial did not mean as much to me as it did to the people of Derry.
It remembers an unhappy incident in the past.
We must come back to the present.
The design of the monument is not a thing of great beauty like the mall in London or the Viet Nam memorial in Washington.

This memorial in itself gave graphic evidence that, if heeded, could have saved the huge cost of the Saville enquiry. The deaths and injuries could not have occurred as in the "official" version of events by virtue of the positions of the fallen.

This memorial is here to remind us of Bloody Sunday. It is free to look at the murals but is well worth paying to have the guided tour of the murals to get some background on them and the area in general as well as the Free Derry Museum afterwards. The Free Derry wall still changes depending on current civil rights events. It was painted pink for gay marriage rights and when I was there Nelson Mandela's name, birth/death year had been painted on it as well. The murals are kept in good condition and every visitor should have a look at them when visiting Derry.

Definitely neat to see with our own eyes and be where the protests and deaths occurred on a historical standpoint. Monument is a simple construction, with the pictures of the victims, and an explanation of what occurred that day. It became more interesting to see after the recent admission of unnecessary use of force by England during the protests that led to those deaths on Bloody Sunday.
