Shaun Gibson



Columnist, Blogger, Political writer, Football Writer, Married, Kids, just here for the banter and Stuff, and I want to change the World 

In six months, Shaun has changed the world.  His internet presence changed from a discussion of living with pain and Fibromyalgia  to news.  Not just any news, but often alternative news that was unexpected and generally unknown.  He diligently searched for the truth above all else with exhaustive research of various sites. Followers rewarded him with over 500,000 hits in those short six months.
As the Scottish Referendum for Independence drew closer to election day,  September 18, his love for his country and her people became more and more the focus of his blog. His voice became more and more the Scottish voice.  Shaun understood the Scottish experience with empathy gained from his own searing, constant pain.  He is a “bleeding heart” liberal concerned with people and their needs. . . . the poor, the elderly, the disabled who need housing, pensions, food , and medical care not Westminster’s  austerity programs where the money is sifted to the war machine.  Scots want the Trident Missiles moved out of their land so that they are no longer part of that culture. We learned all this from his posts as he connected with all who wrote him.
Shaun, you were continually saying that “Everyone has a story. . . ” Thank you for sharing yours with the world and inspiring us.  Your love for Dawn and your children, your love for  the Celtic Football Club,  and your love for Scotland are ever present in your writing.   Thank you for teaching , cajoling, understanding others’ struggles, and your deep  love of Scotland.
I, for one, hope and expect that  we will be able to read more from Shaun as Scotland works out the myriad of details in the next two years  forming their new country. . . . . .
My husband and I were in Scotland for 5 days in 1996.  I remember a man in Callender who spoke so longingly about Scottish Independence. That was my beginning experience with Scotland’s dream of independence.   It has taken over 300 years for this dream to become a reality.  Scotland follow that dream and make it a reality. . . . . Vote YES on September 18th.
Thank you Shaun Gibson for your heart of  freedom!

    Reblogged this on shaunynews and commented:
    A blog for all of Scotland from an amazing friend from the USA. She mentions me, but in truth this battle to get Scotland free was never about me. It is about Scotland. We have under 48 hours now before we know if we have escaped the claws of Westminster and became a sovereign nation full of people who don’t want war, who don’t offer hate. We love here. But we question things. If these 2 years of questions and soul searching has taught the Scottish people ANYTHING it is that Politicians lie and Media join them. I used to blog about these very subjects. As I sit and write now with wrists so sore and hands life sticks I just hope and pray we as a nation can ‘Rise’ one last time. Scotland, the vote is in OUR hands, the future is in OUR hands, vote not with your heart but with your head, all the while knowing your heart and what it wants. Ann you made my cry writing this. Yeah the tears flowed at 3:20 am as I sit here in pain unable to walk well. You are an amazing woman. I am thankful for our friendship. And I know deep down you love us Scots. With a ton of love. Shaun. Le grá i bhfad
