On April 15 1989 , 24,000 Liverpool fans travelled to a football match. 96 never returned home.
The Hillsborough disaster occurred 25 year ago today. For decades, fans were blamed for the deaths of their family members and friends, and they were accused of stealing wallets from corpses. It was all lies concocted by the authorities—including elected officials—and spread by tabloids.

Then I realize what it is. It’s him. Something about him makes me feel like I am about to fall.
Or turn to liquid. Or burst into flames.
Gabriel García Márquez, Nobel laureate, who passed away on April 17, 2014 at the age of 87.obitoftheday)
