We are No Mean City

It makes me very proud to be a Glaswegian after hearing how my fellow citizens put their own safety on the line last to make sure others were rescued from the Clutha Vaults.

Would it not be a good idea to have Hue and Cry re-release their cover of the Michael Marra song Mother Glasgow, and donate the proceeds to all families who have lost loved ones?

This goes to show we are No Mean City.

One for all

On Friday night ordinary citizens came together in a manner that no organisation or institution ever could.

The end of a working week was met by a tragic loss of lives.

When tragic events of this nature have occurred in other parts of the world, the general response has been to clear the area and wait on the emergency services. When the emergency services turned up at the Clutha Bar in Glasgow, ordinary individuals had already instigated their own rescue operation, taking risks and selflessly trying to help others to safety.

This is the Glasgow I was brought up in, a city full of individuals who are caring by nature and determined in every way that counts.

The awful events of Friday will not be forgotten, when the families and friends of those affected turn for support, the family of Glasgow will be there.

Silent tribute

Well done to all the thousands of football fans across Scotland who displayed their sympathies to the victims of the Glasgow helicopter crash with the dignity and respect the occasion deserved. The minute's silence echoed around the country.

Expat's pride

PRIDE doesn't begin to describe how I felt when I read about the actions of my fellow Glaswegians in the aftermath of Friday's helicopter tragedy.

For an old 'Weegie', now living in Canada, the city's reaction made my heart swell.
