Sophie Lancaster Remembered

Sophie Lancaster was murdered in a park in Bacup in 2007. Black Roses is her story told by her mother Sylvia and through a sequence of poems for Sophie by Simon Armitage.

For those that don't know who Sophie was: Wikipedia

Thanks to my friend Andrew for this link.

Thats such a sad story she looks like she was such a beautiful young lady robbed of her life for simply dressing differently really tragic.

I'm French and I've just seen a report on TV about her.
Stupid boys to be polite!

King regards to her family

I've never heard of her before but reading over the wiki page and the poem really breaks my heart. A black and senseless act of violence, extremely tragic. My heart goes out to her family and the community of anti-hate that built up around her death.
