Annual Lecture Richard Moore – ‘ Forgiveness doesn’t change the past, but it does change the future

On Thursday 4th May 1972 when a ten year old Richard Moore was on his way from School, his life changed forever. As he ran past an army lookout post, located at the edge of his school’s playground, a British Soldier fired a rubber bullet from ten feet away, blinding him for life. This is where his remarkable story of forgiveness and compassion begins. Richard featured in the recent BBC documentary series on the troubles, ‘Once Upon a Time In Northern Ireland’.
