As we’re all still reeling from the horrifying and utterly horrendous attacks in Paris last night, I’m sure a lot of us are going to be changing our profile pics and doing our bit to clear away the racist remarks on our social media pages…
Just something to consider. These attacks have a clear purpose in mind, and that’s to widen the current gap between Islam and ‘the West’. To spread fear and contempt of each other, and to spark an Islamophobic reaction that brings out the very worst in humanity. Don’t let that happen.
By staying united in all of this, we can avoid giving the terrorists exactly what they want: to reinforce the idea we’re at war with each other over race, religion and whatever other differences we share as a people. Support each other through this, and don’t let fear and hatred win.
That’s all I have to say right now.
