Lanterns for wee Oscar Knox…

A short video of a few of the lanterns for Oscar Knox over South Belfast.

The brave, generous life of a small boy remembered in a brief, symbolic moment which united people in his home city and across Northern Ireland.

I cannot think of anything that’s happened that’s ever been quite like it. Given how generosity of spirit so often gets squeezed in us, this is surely a moment worth treasuring?
