Support for Glenn family shows the good in people
As an inspiring contrast to the sectarianism shown in attacks on property, people from far and wide have shown commendable support for the family of young Jack Glenn who entered the River Foyle some time ago.
People of all backgrounds and traditions have been giving support to his family in their long vigil as they hope and pray for his body to be returned.
This shows that the innate goodness of the vast majority of people far outweighs what differentiates us.
At times when our political language seems so cheap and nasty, this other side to our community life is worth taking to heart.
