Paris is one of my favourite cities in the world. I’ve been there many times and will go there again. We cannot be cowed into submission by those who would have us live in fear. I live in a city, a country, that has faced terror too. My heart goes out to all those affected by what happened this past Friday. ❤️
I haven’t actually been able handle the dreadful vulture like behaviour of the news services reporting on what happened or the backlash, anger, vitriol, anti religion, extremist religion, xenophobic, war rhetoric that I’m seeing on Facebook, and other places. What happened was so appalling. Why is it ok to add to that with the poison that flows when people think they can say what they like from behind a screen? Innocent people died or were hurt and traumatised. People have lost loved ones. Spiteful, cowardly words and an attitude of hate will never help.
It is not ok. It is never ok.
