Time for understanding

Yet again it looks like there are terrorists at work. Today an SUV vehicle ploughed into a group of pedestrians on Westminster Bridge in London. It’s possible that a group of students from France were part of that group.

I understand the vehicle struck the fence of the Parliament complex. The driver of the SUV entered the grounds where he stabbed a Policeman to death. At that point, other policemen from the protection group shot and killed the terrorist. I know that at least two of the pedestrians struck on the bridge have died. Police and ambulances were there quickly. No-one was sure whether this man was acting alone or maybe a diversion for other attacks. Police were on high alert. Maybe the incident on the bridge was the diversion for the terrorists to try and reach other targets but there was nothing else found by security forces.

That this was a terrorist attack seems highly likely but as yet it isn’t known if it’s a home grown one or an immigrant. What is sure is that given the number of immigrants here we are lucky that so few are terrorists and the rest are as horrified as we are.

I’m purposely not providing a description so that people who look similar are not targeted by the vindictive unthinking people who dislike any immigration. Instead I’m speaking to the rest of you. We need immigrants. Please only treat those that deserve it with any disrespect. Smile at strangers, hug if you can and let them know you can see they are not terrorists. Defuse any hate.

My sympathy for those who lost their lives today and for the family and friends they leave behind. Lets hope these are the last.

Hugs to all.                                                                                                                                                           Wednesday 22.03.2017

    Wise words, as ever dear David. We are all immigrants – at least at some point in our lives. Newcomers, outsiders, desperately trying to find our way. Thanks for being a voice of reason – and hugs! xx

      You’re so right Mel. Somewhere along the line we have immigrants in the family or are immigrants ourselves ( as I was when I lived in England ha ha).No matter the colour of our skin we’re all in this together.
