Paris Je t’aime

ParisThe past few hours has seen many of us glued to the internet following the gruesome attacks in Paris. This city on the Seine has infused so many of our lives with pleasure; to see it torn brutally apart is mind-numbing.

There is little to say as the events unfold other than tonight we stand with Paris, it’s residents – many who are opening their homes to strangers using the hashtag #PortesOuvertes – and like all who value humanity tonight nous sommes tous Parisiens.

Beirut Iraq Paris SyriaMay our commitment to peace be renewed by this tragedy and may it help us in the West to appreciate the horrors faced by refugees – the impetus that has led so many to flee their own nation.
