After the terrorist attacks in London today....

Post by Daise2 » Wed Mar 22, 2017 4:17 pm

I am left thinking of the moving letter Antoine Leiris wrote to Isis after the death of his wife in the Paris bombings. His words reflect perfectly why terrorism will never win, why we will never run to our homes in fear and let these cowards frighten us and give up our freedoms.

Tomorrow, Londoners will go back to work, the Members of Parliament will go back to representing their constituents and I hope that we resist giving this coward a name, a face....I hope we leave him nameless, unimportant...let him and his cause fade and not leave its mark on the memories of the 4 who were killed today and on the spirit of those who stand up to this cowardice and refuse to give up our freedoms.



''On Friday night you stole the life of an exceptional being, the love of my life, the mother of my son, but you won't have my hatred.
I don't know who you are and I don't want to know - you are dead souls. If this God for which you kill indiscriminately made us in his own image, every bullet in the body of my wife will have been a wound in his heart.

So no, I don't give you the gift of hating you. You are asking for it but responding to hatred with anger would be giving in to the same ignorance that made you what you are.

You want me to be afraid, to view my fellow countrymen with mistrust, to sacrifice my freedom for security.You have lost.

I saw her this morning. Finally, after many nights and days of waiting. She was just as beautiful as when she left on Friday night, just as beautiful as when I fell hopelessly in love over 12 years ago.

Of course I'm devastated with grief, I admit this small victory, but it will be short-lived. I know she will accompany us every day and that we will find ourselves in this paradise of free souls to which you'll never have access.

We are two, my son and I, but we are stronger than all the armies of the world.

I don't have any more time to devote to you, I have to join Melvil who is waking up from his nap. He is barely 17-months-old. He will eat his meals as usual, and then we are going to play as usual, and for his whole life this little boy will threaten you by being happy and free. Because no, you will not have his hatred either''

Exactly!

These terrorist are simply ignorant and want others to fear them.

I don't think so!

Life will go on, people will still continue to live their lives.

If these terrorist would only confront their own fears, ignorance, anger and hatred and learn to let them go. They would find that life is much happier when you aren't carrying around so much negative baggage.
