The theme was "forgiveness" - Glynn, one of the speakers described how he had been stabbed in a fight which left him paralysed for life and in a wheelchair from the age of 17. He had not been directly involved in the fight but was helping someone who had been punched when he was attacked then stabbed in the back. Incredibly, despite his footballing dreams being over Glynn forgave his attacker - after many long, bitter years. He described himself as having two disabilities - physically and the disability of hatred. He found that by forgiving he could move on positively in his life and appreciate the new life he had made for himself.
