Aberfan anniversary

Its nearly 40 years since the dreadful Aberfan nightmare It was the first time that a national disaster ever affected me...I remember my Mum being very upset , we had Welsh relatives and she always said she thought how it could have been me at that school.144 people died , 116 of them children .A shocking number that has never been repeated in UK history.It left an entire village without children ..and robbed me of my childhood innosence...
