Cries of Anguish
This poem expresses feelings resulting from this horrible tragedy that many family members have felt - the pain of such loss, frustration with the process of identifying and returning bodies, compassion for the people of Lockerbie and for those who were mandated to retrieve bodies and debris in the aftermath, and anger toward those individuals whose decisions either allowed this to happen or hampered the recovery and notification process.

Poem by Ben Higgins.
I am a 2nd year Public Services Student at Strode College, Street, Somerset. Part of our study involves investigating Disasters and Emergencies. Coincidentally we were studying the psychological effects of disasters and considering victims & families perspectives on the day the verdict was delivered. It seemed appropriate that we should consider Lockerbie in this context. I was so touched by the material we were analyzing that I felt I had to put pen to paper, the result is the poem I have sent to you.
