  1. It makes me angry. Who do those people think they are that they can come into our peaceful countries and impose their beliefs on us. Just like the IRA used to do they think they are drawing attention to their cause when they are actually turning people against it by killing innocents.

  2. Sending love, our thoughts and compassion to the injured, the families of those who died and the people of that region. So very very sad for all of you.

  3. This is a terrible situation. Unimaginable even. However, with the outpouring of grief for the innocent people of Brussels, I have to ask, where was the outpouring of grief when 103 civilians were bombed in Ankara Turkey?
    Is it because Turkey is considered to be a Muslim country that we don’t seem to care about what happened there? Where was their “je suis” moment?

  4. The 23rd psalm comes to mind our thoughts and prays are with you
