France, You are Not Alone

What happened in Paris on Friday, 13th November, 2015, has affected people throughout the world. It is a time of great grief and mourning.

The accompanying photo is of my local war memorial. Tied to it, there is a bunch of red carnations and a note with the words, ‘France, You are Not Alone, We feel Your Pain X’. This small token of love expressing solidarity with those left behind after the slaughter of innocents is a poignant statement. The memorial and the poppies remind us of those who sacrificed their lives for our freedom, and the carnations confirm we have that freedom. 

Love always prevails.

1 Corinthians 13:4-7

Our thoughts are with the families whose loved ones are the innocent victims of this outrageous atrocity and the people of France.
