Two old enemies sit side by side sharing a joke as the once unimaginable image of Ireland's bitterest foes becomes a reality.
Rev. Ian Paisley, the Democratic Unionist Party leader who spent decades denouncing republicans, and Martin McGuinness, a former IRA commander, joined together to assume office as first and deputy first ministers at the head of a new power-sharing government.
Sinn Fein and DUP ministers shook hands as finally the troubles that have besieged Ireland for generations are buried.
Hopefully, a few other warring parties around the globe can see the results of just sitting down and talking instead of reacting with violence.
It was only a decade ago that Canary Wharf was targeted by an IRA truck bomb but those days are consigned to history as peace was given a chance and against all the odds, it blossomed. Rest of the World take note, talking to each other works.
