Omagh bomb victim Claire an inspiration to rest of us

Editor's Viewpoint

If anyone could have wallowed in self-pity at the hand life dealt her it is Claire Bowes, the girl blinded in the Omagh bombing.

Instead, she has tackled life head on in a manner which puts so many of us to shame. She has got married, had children and in the past year travelled alone to London several times to gain higher qualifications for her piano tuition. Most of us will resolve from today to lead better lives, become fitter, give up some health vice and most of us will fail miserably. We should be inspired by Claire, who set herself goals in the past year and achieved them. She did not let her injuries hold her back and today is a very contented woman. Can we emulate her?
