I have no title for this




I want to go to bed and wake up tomorrow.. and hear that this was all just a nightmare because I watched a bad movie.

So many innocent lives.. people who went to see a football match, to enjoy a concert, to have something to eat and drink. They will never go back to those who loved them.

Can't believe how someone could take someone's life like that in cold blood.

I am scared for a lot of things: which country will be next? Which city will be next? Are we able to protect ourselves?

I am also worried: can our democracy hold? Or will we give into fear of populists?

Will Europe be and stay united as one? United against terror? United against those who were celebrating this in the banlieues?

United against those whose beliefs and laws are fundamentally incompatible with values based on liberté, égalité et fraternité?

But also,.. will Europe stay united for those refugees who truly need help? And who had nothing to do with this?

Posting photos of my latest outfits and shoes seems so shallow and pointless on a terrible and horrific night like this.

My thoughts are with those in the City of Lights.

Je pense à vous tous!

  5. I'm sorry to hear this! Although, this isn't just happening in Europe, we hear of violence such as this in our part of the world too - Asia, to be specific. I think we have to pray for a better world and for people to be more human.

  12. Humanity is a delicate balance between wise mind and wise heart. Those who have are actively balancing the two and exerting effort into making the world a better place should be applauded and praised. I would love for all of us to be fearless and relentless about the fact that we refuse to give the world away to terrorist forces and to mindless violence. I can't help feel more connected to other mindful humans all over the world who post support and take the time to express their condolences.

  17. to be honest, I don't think Europe was every united...it is all wishful thinking and we would be betteroff respecting and loving our differences than to pretend we live in an ideal Europe.
