One evening whilst visiting a hamburger shop a teenager came in, he was in the latest gear,he could have come from either community, as both groups favoured the same clothes and fast food.I hoped at that time that this was a sign of everyday normality returning. Though with its bright colours I think it still has an undercurrent of unease.Through the troubles the people could have a gallows sense of humor, it seemed to keep them going.
