Sadness acknowledges bravery, seeks justice: Linda Norgrove

Very sad, very unfair. Although I didn’t personally know this dedicated, inspiring, biking adventurer from my native Isle of Lewis I can’t help but feel this one hits home. My thoughts are with her family. Requiescat In Pace, Linda Norgrove. You died helping others and I hope the council, Comhairle nan Eilean, and other appropriate agencies, in Scotland and further afield, will provide a fitting memorial. Tearfully, I bow. Peace, peace, peace.
