20 years on

I don't often post about anything other than writing but today I'll make an exception.
I happened to be in Sheffield on 15th April 1989 and I remember seeing the police cars and ambulances flying towards Hillsborough and wondering what on earth was going on. Not for one second did I think that it was what was going on. My heart and thoughts go out to anyone that was effected by what happened that day.
As a football fan who has stood on a kop you can't help thinking there but for the grace of God.

Twenty years later it is still difficult to grasp what happened and how it came about. Difficult to believe, in fact.

I remember seeing it unfold on the news, and feeling total disbelief. Can't believe it was 20 years ago.

I think that's what hits me the most. How can it be 20 years?
