The Star: Tamil Canadians haunted by Black July, 1983. ⇒

   24 July 2006, early morning

My family was already living in London when all of this happened. However, we were in Sri Lanka for about half a year prior to all of this, and left just before it all turned to shit. My dad was planning to move back to Jaffna, and had plans for a house drafted. Traveling from Jaffna to Colombo to visit a friend he said he could sense all the tension in the air, which is why we left Sri Lanka. If I recall correctly, our train out of the peninsula was the last to leave, as the LTTE bombed the tracks afterwards. There is a memorial taking place today in Dundas Square from 6-9 PM.

Don't be shy, you can comment too!

Some things to keep in mind: You can style comments using Textile. In particular, *text* will get turned into text and _text_ will get turned into text. You can post a link using the command "linktext":link, so something like "google": will get turned in to google. I may erase off-topic comments, or edit poorly formatted comments; I do this very rarely.
