What crazy times we are living in. I will admit that recently traveling in France and England I was nervous. My children thought I would be a bit of a basket case as my husband and I arrived in Paris two days after the terror death of a police officer on the Champs Elysees, I was not. Sad yes, insanely nervous no.
It was oddly reassuring to see the armed military in police patrolling the city. Our daughter just this week travelled from the south of France back to Scotland where armed military were apparent at the airport. Something she had never seen in Scotland before. I feel horrible for the families of those affected by the horror of the attack in Manchester.
I so admire the people of Manchester who are strong and have shown the world that they will not let terror win. These wonderful people who go about life, doing the small things and enjoying life, being examples for the world.
Don’t know if I would ever have their strength and determination to live a “normal” life, all things big and small. Thank you Manchester for showing me the way.
