I would like to begin this week by wishing all Birmingham Mail readers a peaceful, memorable Christmas.
I know a good many of you support us - you'll never know how much that means to Justice4the21.
Others may just follow us out of curiosity via this column or other news, but thank you sincerely for your interest.
If you are in town tomorrow (Sat, Dec 21) we will be holding another signature collecting day from 10.30am until 3.30pm outside Marks & Spencer in the High Street.
I know everyone is very rushed for obvious reasons, but please spare us a few seconds to say hello and sign our petition.
We are calling for a new investigation into the Birmingham pub bombings urging the use of the latest forensic and scientific tests.
Every name we collect really counts.
Please sign for our sakes, for the sake of our city's history and for truth and justice to prevail.
For us, like a good many who have lost loved ones, Christmas will be a time of reflection and memories and so on. We ask ourselves 'what if this' or 'what if that' and so on.
Maxine would have been 57 had she lived, may be with children. Life for hundreds in the city would have been very different had the bombers never struck on that terrible night on November 21, 1974.
Of course, we can't change history, but we can change the future.
By learning lessons from the past and by building on a foundation of truth and justice.
This is something which has been denied the victims of the pub bombings for long enough.
We cannot rest until all avenues have been exhausted in pursuit of this.
Our campaign continues to steadily grow.
We were recently invited to attend the Traditional Unionist Voice's (TUV) political party conference in Northern Ireland recently where they had decided to devote the afternoon session to a Victim's Forum.
This was a truly emotional experience for all concerned. There were many people in attendance who had lost loved ones to terrorist attacks.
Listening to other people's loss and grief is extremely difficult for anyone, but even more so when you know exactly how deep rooted those feelings are. We all feel and share each other's pain and suffering.
It is like being in a club, but one that no one would choose to belong to if they had a choice.
On the Victim's Forum was John Radley (Lance Corporal in the Irish Guards) who was nearly killed by an IRA nail bomb in Chelsea Barracks Bomb attack over 30 years ago. John has had many operations and has had over 7,000 stitches with many more to come.
Ann Travers was there who has been fighting successfully alongside Mr Jim Allister QC MLA (Member of the Legislative Assembly) to get the law changed in Northern Ireland to prevent ex-terrorists who have served time for their crimes from being appointed into government positions.
Her sister was murdered in cold blood by IRA gunmen as she walked home from Sunday Mass. Her father was also shot six times but somehow survived. They also tried to shoot her mother but fortunately the gun jammed three times, while her mother was holding her daughter, Mary, in her arms.
Serena Hamilton also joined the forum. She has been fighting to bring the murderers of her father to justice for decades. He was shot at point blank range at work whilst changing into his uniform as an officer of the Royal Ulster Constabulary.
We all fight for the same aim - justice and truth.
No one is born to be murdered. Those responsible for these heinous crimes must be brought to justice once and for all.
I should make it clear that even though the TUV are a political party, Justice4the21 is non-political. However we share the same fight for justice.
As a campaign we are prepared to speak with any political party who can assist us in our campaign.
We want no money, no apology, simply justice, nothing more, nothing less. For with justice will come truth.
I would like to thank Mr Jim Allister QC MLA and Mr Samuel Morrison for inviting us to their party conference.
It gave our campaign the opportunity to highlight our plight to those in Northern Ireland.
As a nation, we may be parted by water, but this does not in any way diminish the support and tight links we are building with the people of Northern Ireland.
We were treated with the utmost kindness and hospitality. It was a truly humbling experience.
All these people will be in our thoughts as Christmas arrives.
