From Brendan Flynn, The Ireland Canada Monument
I know of others trying to get the truth out. e.g. The Holocaust Site on Facebook. However, there is an awful lot of finger pointing going on there which I do not like myself. That will get us nowhere in my opinion.
My feeling is once people know how the Irish people died, it will be easy to figure out who caused it.
Even that is not the issue.
The issue is the dignity of those that died deserve the truth and nothing less. We (Irish) will be seen as real fools if we keep promoting the fact that those in Ireland that died in 1845-48 died because potatoes rotted in the ground. If we keep promoting that line, others will just accept thats they how 1.5+ million died and let us run with it.
The truth must be made crystal clear especially to children learning Irish History.
The thought comes to mind of composing a single sentence (or two) that would clearly indicate we Irish know the truth and we would like you (meaning the world) to know it also. It would not be offensive but instead give dignity to those that perished throughout Ireland.
Just a thought.
