Paris was my home for 7 years. I lived and worked there, it's where many of my friends still are. It's a city I will always love. I am so deeply shocked and saddened about what happened on Friday night.
When terrorism touches your country, it affects you personally. But we must remember that this is happening in so many countries around the world. Thousands of refugees are running from this very same threat.
My hope is that these attacks unite the people of France, people of all colours and religions. Terrorism comes from hate. We cannot fight it with hate for each other.
My blog has changed! If you're looking for my English-practice exercises, they're all still here, just look in the archives.
