Belfast is alight with Fire Works at the moment and it looks really beautiful.  The City is just lovely in the evenings and everyone should be having a ball.

All that is except one young boy who has been stabbed in the Odyssey Complex tonight...Terrible for one set of Parents on what should be a fun night for the Young People.

On my way earlier to town hundreds of young people were everywhere all in costume heading to a Fire Works Display I am now praying they all return home safe.

Who remembers this oul rhyme when knocking on doors at Halloween?  :)

Halloween's coming on and the goose is getting fat,
Would you please put a penny in the old mans hat,
If you haven't got a penny a ha'penny will do,
If you haven't got a ha'penny then god bless you and yer old man too.

Do they still sing it?   :-\

I remember that song.  I think this "Trick or Treat" thing came over from America. Can't remember saying that when I was a kid.

Terrible thing to have happened I am also praying for the Boy and his Family.  I would really hate to be in my late teens nowadays.

If Boys got in a row it was not with Bottles and Knives.  The Children now have a lot to fear God Love them and the parents a lot of worry when your Kids leave the home.  Dreadful...

Kathleen,

it is very sad, I fear every time my grandson goes out.  I really pray the boy is okay.

The world seems like a different place these days Val and especially for some young people. Violence and aggression seem like the norm for them. I don't know if it's due to over exposure to violent video games and movies or the break down of their family unit but it's very scary indeed. I always tell my daughter-in-law to count her blessing because at the moment her children are still very young and she knows where they are at night, all tucked up and safe in bed !
