Wow what a great year! This was a year where I fulfilled one of my dreams.

Some of my highlights this year were:

• Completed the Omagh Half Marathon
• Completed the Belfast Marathon
• Took a city break to Krakow
• Started a Church project of Tract Distribution
• Purchased 30% of the BNI Northern Ireland Region
• Started a new BNI Chapter – Invictus

This visited highlighted man inhumanity to man. Some of the things that were done to other human beings were unspeakable.

Reality hit home when I looked at the pictures of the internees. These pictures documented when they arrived and when they died. The average survival rate was approx. 6 months.

Many of the people arrived in these camps by train and that is where the line came to an end.

It may not be everyone’s dream but it is a place that everyone should visit.
