We felt the need to do something more than a provide few words of sympathy. So, here it is.
If you have a holiday rental in Spain you’d like to advertise on this site we’ll donate all of the €20 cost* when you sign-up to War Child’s Children of Syria Appeal. Do please read on if you don’t have a property, because you can still make a donation with the Just Giving link at the bottom of the page.
Paris will recover, Brussells will recover (and lets not forget all the other places affected outside Europe where it will take much longer). Those extremists who commit these atrocities do not represent any religion, any race or any nation. They are scum, they are murderers who represent nothing but evil itself.
The anti-refugee paranoia is unfounded. These poor people, men women and children are coming from places where these kinds of atrocities occur daily at the hands of Daesh. They are literally running for their lives in most cases. They do not in any way deserved to be vilified based simply on the actions of a very, very small number of psychopaths.
Recovery for the refugees will take longer, and it may well never come at all for many. By far and away, in my opinion, the best way to deal with the crisis is to demonstrate humanity to those in need. The more compassion we show, the more evil the killers become.
Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.

This problem isn’t going away any time soon for sure.

I’ve tried my best not to bang on too much about my own feelings and views on the topic, but if you are interested to read some more on the subject you might like to read this article from back in October – “Send them back where they came from!”
