Maze move is a sign of progress

I would like to congratulate Peter Robinson and Martin McGuinness for taking the courageous first step in agreeing to move forward with the Maze development.

On the news report on Friday an MLA asked, "What has changed?" Surely the answer is, "We all have."

This visionary project will bring many opportunities for the whole community to work together and benefit from EU funding.

Although we all realise there is still some way to go, I firmly believe that through the ever-growing understanding of what we have in common, respect for our differences and a determination to build a fair and inclusive society, our communities can embrace this new Peace Building and Reconciliation Centre as a symbol of a better future for us all.
