What can we say?

Another attack on innocent people – men, women, children, Christian, Muslim, atheist, – the world pours out its sympathy, with messages of support all over Facebook, news reports unpicking every detail and examining all the facts.

Yes, it is terrible. And it is, it appears, the world we live in now.

But I honestly can’t help thinking, where were the minute-by-minute updates on the recent bomb attacks in Baghdad, for example?  Is it because this occurred in Europe? Because it brings it one step closer to home? I don’t know. But maybe now is not the time to ask the questions.

It is the time to pray for this world, for those who want to bring discord, hatred, suspicion, death and destruction. And to pray for those who want to counter that with love. Pray for Love.
