      1. I don’t usually look at comments but this caught my eye:
        Dale, I think we all have to have hope.
        There were times during the Troubles here in Ireland that it seemed like we would never see peace but that dream has come true so it is possible, All about realising that talking is so much more effective than killing.

        My solution is bring mothers to the table and they would solve all the conflicts as these mothers would not want to see their sons go to war. Men on the other hand would praise them for their courage.

        1. I think there’s a lot in what you say, Joseph. Here in Ireland, it was the determination and bravery of quite a diverse little group that lit the spark to get the peace process on the road.

    1. Julie, thanks very much for writing. I feel honoured to have a twelve year old commenting here and my hope is that people of your generation will know and fully embrace world peace when they reach my (middle) age!

  1. Hello Jean, I am back from a week away and was shocked to catch-up with the news yesterday. My thoughts for the people of Paris are heartfelt. I love Paris and I remember the friendly people who helped us out when we were lost or when we were getting lunch. Love and hugs across the sea.

  2. We were away this weekend in wine country, and Friday night, we were enjoying some wine in the quiet of our hotel lobby, relaxing, when we heard of the attacks. The irony was palpable. There really are no words, Jean. Our world has gone crazy, but we need to hold onto Love and Hope in order to move forward. Otherwise, fear will paralyze us. Prayers for Paris and the entire world. Lovely post, my friend…
