Brussels Terrorist Attacks Thoughts & Feelings #JeSuisBruxelles
Wednesday, 23 March 2016
I was on my way to run some errands when I realized something in the center of Brussels was really off, there was an unusual amount of police cars and ambulances driving at very high speed, through all the traffic. Being the observant person I am, I decided to check if my intuition was right. It only took me a phone call to know what was going on: two terrorist attacks, one around 8 AM in Brussels Airport and the next at 9.11 AM in the European quarter. I had left the house at 9.15. Those responsible for the attacks in Paris were taken into custody just days ago and now innocent people were targeted again?
I remember that Paris night like it was yesterday, whilst people were being savagely slaughtered in bars, restaurants and concert halls, I was out in my heels drinking cocktails, telling my friend jokingly if something were to happen I'd be completely useless in my stilettos. Today I was walking near the Royal Park and a bomb had gone off just 500m away. Everything that's happened is just plain out cruel, no living being should have to go through such thing. No one with a healthy mind would think this makes sense or that these actions can be justified for a cause. Be strong Brussels folks, Manneken Pis will keep on peeing from his pedestal on their empty heads and dark and vicious hearts.
Q: If you had super powers, how would you deal with these terrorists? Be sure to let me know in the comments!
