a gesture and some hard words...

this day
Justin McGovern

a vibrant, sporty, ragamuffin teen from our little town

was walking home
in the early hours of a foggy Sunday morning

when a few hundred metres from his home

he was struck by a vehicle

that did not stop


Justin died in the middle of the road 

before help could be summoned


a year has passed

 and still no one has come forward to claim responsibility 


I left a paper heart by the cross that sits next to the road



  1. "Did not stop". Such sad words. How could you not... Ronnie, you are helping to ensure this young man is not forgotten. xxx

    1. it is hard to think about, hard to write about...

  2. back for my third time, still no words Ronnie.


thanks for all your lovely comments - your words are greatly appreciated xx
