Should I tell my story as a Hub

    When I was 16 years old I joined a terrorist organisation and remained a terrorist for 12 years should I tell this story as a Hub.....I regret the bad things I done...should I share...True Story..

      Depends on how painful it would be for you-- and certainly you should not share anything that could come back to bite you now-- but that said, it would be a fascinating read for your fellow hubbers and maybe a catharsis for you as well.  I say go for it

      Definitely!
      Experiences are experiences, you should never regret. I'm sure you learned a lot.

      Just read it-- Kudos and thanks for sharing all that-- it's a wonderful, if heart rending,  read. Welcome to Hubpages. I'm looking forward to more smile.

    I don't have a problem with you posting it - but be prepared to get some nasty comments - especially from the 'society' you terrorised.

    SimeyC, I am well known to that community and I have been forgiven by that community.....times have changed here now...we still have terrorists but they hav elost their power over people....

      SimeyCposted 8 years agoin reply to this

      I was more talking about those not in the community....people like me who are British - although I hope you see from my comment on your Hub that I'm not anti Irish....and I wasn't nasty (I don't think anyway!).

      It is great that a community can heal itself and forgive...it is important for future generations!

    Thanks for that SimeyC, and dont think that I am anti British I was just using the language of the day as it were.....

      SimeyCposted 8 years agoin reply to this

      actually I didn't - quite the opposite! I think the problem was that the whole thing really was anti-government, unfortunately a lot of innocent people got harmed.

    SimeyC you are so correct, many thousands of people butchered to feed the egos of small men....

  11. theirishobserver. profile image59
    theirishobserver.posted 8 years ago

    SimeyC, just read your comment on my Hub, very fair comment, we still have terrorists active here but they are being heavily rejected by all sides of the community.....

    Robie2 to be honest I am exhausted after that, I just wrote as I remember it, I could have written for days but I think you get the idea......

      robie2posted 8 years agoin reply to this

      Hmmmm sounds cathartic to me-- hope so anyway:) In any case I am glad you shared it and I bet you will be writing more as time goes on about it. The inspiring part is how you turned your life around--really.

    Hey, Irish.. You speak like british.. So can you tell me what being Gobsmacked means?

  14. theirishobserver. profile image59
    theirishobserver.posted 8 years ago

    NewYorker, I can only tell my story from what I experienced.....it is the leadership of the IRA who are now in the Northern Ireland Assembly....they are now getting their salary from the British.... so I dont think anyone really knows what taling like the Britsih is anymore

    Thanks Robie2, I have just told it as it was, if that is a wrong thing to do well...I could sneak about here and say nothing about myself...but I prefer honesty....I have just posted my recipe for Irish Steak...move on
