A Message of Hope

Leave a comment

This weekend has been filled with images of suffering and sadness as we have watched the developing news of the violent attacks on innocent civilians in Paris, France. Because I was so busy at work on Friday, I was not aware of these events until I arrived home. I received a Facetime call from my youngest daughter,18, who was on a college choir trip to Philadelphia and was anxious about the news. Through our iPhones we shared positive images and messages of people uniting around the world to show their support for France. We talked about the negative stereotypes of muslims because of the hateful acts of a small minority and the importance of speaking up against ignorance. We talked about the Eiffel Tower going dark in memory of the victims of the attacks and we shared images of the world lighting up blue,white and red in New York City, San Francisco, Brazil, Australia as a message of hope and support for France. We talked about the peace symbol created by graphic designer Jean Jullien spreading all over social media from company cover photos, twitter profile pictures to instagram messages.
