You'll Never Walk Alone 

April 15th 1989 - A day we will never forget!

Thousands of Liverpool fans went to watch their side play Nottingham Forest in the FA Cup Semi-Final at Sheffield's Hillsborough Stadium - and 96 of them never came home.

96 innocent Reds died that day due to poor organization.

The Hillsborough Memorial stands alongside the Shankly Gates at Anfield, the home of Liverpool FC, and is always decorated with flowers and other tributes to the 96 fans who lost their lives in the disaster.

At the centre of the memorial burns the eternal flame, signifying that they will never be forgotten and They'll Never Walk Alone.

If you are a Liverpool fan, or in fact any football fan, who cannot visit the ground to pay your respects, please visit the Liverpool FC site and spare a few moments for them this 15th April.

Perhaps one day we will see justice for them. The thoughts of us all are with the families and friends of the 96 who died and everyone affected by the sad tragedy.
