Question of the Day
That peace today is far from perfect. Much of Northern Ireland remains divided on political, cultural and religious lines, and truce-breaking IRA dissidents remain active in targeting police and soldiers.
Hours before the campers toured Belfast, IRA dissidents detonated a car bomb outside the main police station in Londonderry, a city on the other side of Northern Ireland, damaging buildings but injuring nobody. On Wednesday an army officer found a booby-trap bomb under his car.
“Recently a lot of trouble has been bubbling up with the IRA dissidents. I don’t know if the conflict has truly been solved. There’s lots of ifs and buts,” Whiteside said. “I worry sometimes that people from my side of the community will decide to fight back again like before. The one side here always wants to provoke the other.”
Whiteside, who also attended last year’s camp in Pennsylvania, said the Tuesday’s Children camps are special because she feels free to share her deepest feelings and fears.
“My mother and sisters were never able to talk so openly like this,” Whiteside said. “In Common Bond you’re actually given space and freedom to express how you’re feeling, which is not the done thing in Northern Ireland.”
