Paris Attacks

Posted on Updated on

To the victims and their families..

Deepest sympathies – we cannot imagine your pain and grief.

Our thoughts and prayers are with you at this terrible time.

Nobody should be made to suffer as you are, and our hearts go out to you.

To the perpetrators, living and dead…

Your barbaric brutality impresses no-one.

Yes, we are afraid of your actions – who will you set out to murder next? Men, women and even children are not safe from your cowardly attacks.

But we will not be bowed.

We will continue to live our lives according to our values.

We will enjoy the freedoms that you seek to destroy.
