Respects to the dead in Nice this weekend. For some reason, this is the first terrorist attack that has made me feel the threat very strongly in a real sense. Probably because it is coupled with the uncertainty of unity in Europe and the US right now, and the systematic yet disordered senselessness of the attack.
While it would be impossible to argue that we don't bear some responsibility for the current conflict and loss of life through the actions of the west in the middle east, two wrongs do not make a right. May the souls of the deceased rest in peace and may their bodies be recovered and returned to their families, and may there be an end to the violence in east and west alike.
May these deaths serve to remind us of the peace and prosperity that European unity and the progressive politics of the last 70 years have brought us, and may all of the Europeans on this board be safe as the crisis progresses.
