Rosie Kane: Kindness in the face of tragedy.
THE last time I was in the Community Central Halls in Maryhill my daughter was competing in an Irish dancing contest.
Last week I went back to sign the book of condolences opened after the terrible explosion at Stockline Plastics.
It was no surprise that it became the centre of support when tragedy struck so many families.
It's difficult to find words to describe our firefighters, police, medics and all the search and rescue workers. Courage, sensitivity and and dogged determination are a few but there are many more.
The workers at the hall are also heroes. I met Linda, Susanne, Mhari and others and was touched by their dedication as they comforted worried and grieving relatives.
My heart goes out to those families affected by the tragedy and my thanks to everyone who worked so hard to ease their pain.
