Yet again I write with sadness at the senseless cruelty from our own species.
Brussels has today become the latest scene of mass murder, chaos, fear and anger.
Having seen month after month of atrocities waged here on Turkish soil,
we feel the pain, the shock, the fear, the anger. Be strong dear Brussels.
We are with Brussels, just as I am sure they were with us not just a few days ago.
I saw a post on Facebook today – here is an excerpt that stuck with me.
Our humanity was robbed of us today, as it was in Istanbul last week, in Ankara the week before, before that in Paris, Beirut, Kano, the Bardo National Museum in Tunisia, and so many more. Know this, those who hide deep within the darkest pools of innocent blood shed, our spirit shall never die because without love, without freedom, without respect, we are nothing. We will never accept your chains forged on the anvils of fear and we we will never accept your t/error and paranoia as substitute for freedom.
Yet again I offer simple words: May all the victims rest in peace.
