    What an inspired and touching tribute. Such a horrific thing, especially` affecting ordinary people doing ordinary things in a beautiful city. I will never understand what drives these people to kill and cause so much hurt! xx Rowena

      My husband and I lived in and around Paris for 11 years up until 2010, so we were concerned for people we knew, but thankfully none have been involved. We used to go to the Stade de France for concerts, so know that area, too. I think failed integration is a huge factor, but of course, it’s more complex.

        Oh my goodness. That makes things very personal for you. I ha a look at thre list of victims and did wonder if I’d know anyone. I have had a broad social circle and Australians travel a lot and aren’t always on an Australian passport. Fortunately, I didn’t know anyone but a former work colleague and friend, was one of the hostages in the Sydney Siege and a lot of people here had a personal connection. Take care xx Rowena

        Glad to know you have not been touched personally by the Paris attacks. I’ve just read that a Jewish teacher has been stabbed (not fatally) by three men in Marseille. My husband was there a couple of weeks back and has to travel there again next week. With our surname (my husband is Turkish by birth but not a practising muslim) we are no strangers to racism, particularly he in his travels around the world. But this has nothing to do with Islam anyway; it’s just been hijacked as an excuse to act out a psychopathy. And in some ways, western culture has provided the staging. Sorry, I’m speechifying! Good luck. I think the solution to every antipathy is to create right at it! 🙂
