I am, of course, as wound up in the excitement of the London 2012 Olympics as anyone else.
Which somehow makes it even worse to think of little 12-year-old
Tia Sharp, who had all her life in front of her, found dead at her grandmother's home. And of soldiers Andrew Chesterman and Matthew Smith, whose deaths in Afghanistan were reported today.
all the country is celebrating Olympic success, others are mourning. We should - we WILL - remember them.
