The French flag and the ideals it stands for are beautiful things. But I won’t be wrapping myself in something that divides as much as it unites. Of course I support Paris, and the victims of atrocities everywhere. But I can’t support France in closing its borders and declaring war. What does that promote, except the aims of terror-causers and warmongers everywhere? Open your hearts, minds and borders, people of this planet.
We are all either refugees or descendants of refugees (or of Africans). There is no “other”. Why do we continue to make the same mistakes, generation after generation?
