Today we celebrate Independence Day; and since this time last year we have gone through and are still going through a period of great turmoil and life, for all of us, will never be the same.
So, whilst we celebrate I ask you to just take a moment and remember that there are many people who should be celebrating with us but are sadly gone.
Thank you once again for joining me for Terry Pratchett Day; the day in the year when we mark the passing of a truly brilliant storyteller.
I could write a lot of heart felt words, but I suspect, in fact after talking to Bernard I’m certain, that Terry would just call me a ‘daft bugger’, so I won’t. I’ll just say that wherever you are Terry we miss you; you’ve left a bloody big hole in the world.
