It’s a strange day today – as another work week starts after the terrorist attacks in Paris. While most of us find ourselves going back to normalcy and life as we know it, there are thousands of people out there whose lives will never be the same. They’ve lost friends, family, colleagues and loved ones to a another senseless act of terror. At least 129 people have died, according to city officials, with – at the time of writing – another 42 still in intensive care. Some voices in Europe are now calling for a stop to immigration from Syria, but we would only be closing the door on people fleeing this very same violence into the apparent safety that we can offer them. It’s vital at a time of such tragedy and outrage not to be drawn into responses which feed a cycle of violence and hatred. Instead, let’s remember that this is not an attack on Paris, but on freedom – making all of us it’s intended targets. Let’s stand together in sympathy and solidarity to the friends and families of those affected by these crimes.
