WHITE WIN


White is the colour of peace. I had planned this post weeks ago but because of last week events in Paris, I felt like I had to re-write it. Besides being elegant to wear, white is the colour of peace and peace is what we need now, at least in our hearts.
I remember the moment I heard about the Paris attacks. I was not ready and nobody was. I remember my Twitter feed being normal, funny and joyful as usual. Then, a second later, it went totally crazy. A friend of mine tweeted about a shooting and from that moment everything happened so quickly. One shooting, bombs exploding near the french football stadium where thousands of fans were watching the France vs Germany match, a second shooting, a third one, a hostage taking... At that moment I couldn't stop staring at my screen because it was just... unbielivable. It was happening again. The horror of the beginning of the year was happening again.
I texted my friends who were possibily outside and made sure they were safe -and luckily they were. While the terror was growing, I could also notice the parisian solidarity growing. People opening their doors for people who couldn't go back home. At 2am it was finally over. Horrible videos and photos appeared in my timeline, and I slowly start ed to realize that it happened in places I knew, places I often go, streets I was walking in earlier that day. I had posted a beautiful pictures of Paris' sunset, and while looking at it, I was just shocked. How could such a beautiful day turn into such a nightmare. People were searching for their loved ones. How many innocent people that just wanted to celebrate the end of week lost there lives that night? How many families and friends had their heart broken. How long will Paris take to heal? From the moment it started, I knew going back to university on Monday would not be the same anymore. People would barely look at each other, terrified, more stressed than usual. Muslims would suffer from it whereas they should not because they are not responsible for what happened.
Healing is going to be long and tough, but as long as we have peace in our hearts, it will come. Pray for peace.

"Now the pain we all feel at this dreadful loss reminds me, and, reminds us, that though we may come from different countries and speak in different tongues, our hearts beat as one." - Dumbledore. 


Je ré-écris les quelques lignes d'un post planifié il y a déjà quelques semaines car au vu des évênements de vendredi dernier, cela me semble approprié.
J'espère que votre familles et vos proches vont bien. Tout ce qui est arrivé ressemble à un mauvais rêve et pourtant cela ne l'est pas. Des centaines de personnes ont perdu la vie ce soir-là, alors que la seule chose qu'ils souhaitaient était de célébrer la fin d'une longue semaine. Derrière son écran on se sent impuissant, on assiste à l'horreur mais aussi à l'élan de solidarité qui s'élève. Le lendemain Paris est éteinte et on se remet doucement des événements de la veille. Les avis de recherche fusent et on espère sincèrement que ces gens retrouveront leurs proches. On commence à penser à lundi, à quoi Paris va-t-elle ressembler ? Elle va surement mettre du temps à se relever. On pense aux gens qui vont être les victimes de ces événements sans raison aucune, si ce n'est leurs croyances qui ne tiennent aucun rôle dans ces attentats. Le terrorisme n'a pas de religion, ne l'oubliez pas. On se dit que des gens vivent ce qu'on a vécu en une nuit tous les jours. C'est effrayant et ce n'est pas une vie. Après cela, comment ne pas comprendre les gens qui risquent leurs vies pour fuir leur pays. On pense aux endroits attaqués, que cela aurait pu être nous. Plus tôt le jour-même, je me promenais sur un des lieux attaqués, café à la main, appréciant le coucher de soleil dans l'innocence la plus complète. Et maintenant ? La machine va mettre du temps à se remettre en marche comme en janvier dernier. Mais comme en janvier dernier, chacun va reprendre sa routine, et doucement, espérons-le, le coeur parisien va recommencer à battre, en gardant en mémoire toutes ces vies perdues.
