Remembering Miles Amos

I think today is an important day for Northern Ireland and I welcome the Queen's visit and the handshake she has shared with Martin McGuinness

On days like this I remember Miles Amos. Miles was the son of family friends, I often played with him growing up, and I remember my mother telling me about his death very vividly, and reading a copy of the valediction my father gave at his funeral. He was killed by an IRA landmine. It was a very sad time and I still think about Miles, his sister Naomi and his parents Di and Geoff every time I hear about the troubles.

So on days like this, I choose to remember Miles Amos.
