David Bush: No Goodbye
Here David talks about the sadness he felt in not getting to say goodbye to his parents.
TranscriptI think one of my most vivid memories is when I did get there, which makes me think my parents were quite, emotional about the parting, was that I remember being in the main entrance to the school and I saw my parents' car disappearing away, they didn't say 'Goodbye' and at that point I felt betrayed, extremely lonely and sad, and it took me a long time, to forgive them for that. I was very homesick for, really that first year.
