In the face of hardship
We all know there is a dark side to humanity. And sometimes, one gets reminded of this close, so close to home. In the face of such hardship, what can we do? I refuse to give up to anger and cynism on this sad day. In the face of hardship, it is important to focus on the good.
The #PorteOuverte hashtag was born just minutes after the attacks, Parisians offering to shelter people in their homes. We received support from all around the world. Messages flow from friends and family. In the face of hardship, humans cooperate, support each other, stand up to evil. In the face of hardship, we are one. This time, I want to keep faith in humanity, see the positive emerge from hardship.
PS: We are safe. Friends are safe. And grateful for it. All our thoughts go to the victims and their families.
