I thought Peter spoke extremely well - and the way he remembered every detail. And as he is such a high profile figure in the Victims' movement, he is able to help the thousands of others to step up and maybe, after listening to him, allow them to tell their own story.
He certainly has made me think of myself as I am also a victim.
I was at my place of work back in 1975. It was Halloween and a friend had called in. Being only 18 at the time, we were talking about going to a disco later that night in the local hall.
As we stood talking, a fella came in, pointed at me and told me to go into the back store. He followed me in. He told me to lie down. After a few minutes which seemed like an hour - as you can imagine, everything was racing through my head - he then shot me in both legs and ran out.
I tried to crawl back into the shop. I felt I was on fire. I screamed to my friend for a drink of water, but God help her. She was hysterical. Luckily there was a chemist's shop next store and the pharmacist ran in. But as the blood was gushing like a fountain from my legs, he slipped and fell flat on his back.
By the time the ambulance arrived my daddy who had been on his way to see me, instead ended up in the ambulance with me. He could not stop being sick and vomited up all over the back of the ambulance, while at the same time trying to hold my hand.
Like Peter, I still suffer today from my injuries. Now that Peter has instilled the courage in me to come forward, just as he has, I hope that the stories of all the victims will be told in the future.
I would like to meet up with Peter as there are so many questions I need to ask him.
