How do you make sense of this? We’ve just returned from the SSCA Gam in Melbourne and the news is all about the tragedy in Paris. It just doesn’t compute. I don’t think anyone living in our society can understand what motivates these kind of atrocities to occur and it seems to be continuing and even getting worse.
For me, after realizing I will never be able to get my head around the why and how of all this, the next thought is what can I do to deal with it. First, I think, is to give our hearts and prayers to the people of Paris and all those affected. Second, we must revel in our freedom and flaunt it to those who would take it away. Our life style is all about freedom, and is what has drawn us to it. There is nothing like being completely in control of ourselves, coming and going as we please and reveling in nature. It is intoxicating and addicting, and something I’ll never let go.
Let us remember those affected by this and all the other terrorist tragedies, and never forget or take for granted our freedom, and hold it up as a banner in the face of those who would take it away.
