Once again we have been faced with the most horrific pictures and stories coming through our TV’s, there are no words to express our feelings, how can this be happening to ordinary people and families?

The cry of a child being taken off the Metro train will haunt us all for a long time.

People going about their daily business, just going off to work or off to the airport possibly for Easter holidays, when in a split second lives are lost and lives changed for ever.

With instant reports on all media platforms we see and hear minute detail of personal stories, some journalists ask pointless questions to those who are in deep shock.

It is at times like these that we take stock, a time to be thankful that we and our families are safe.

As a grandparent I constantly wonder what sort of world our grandchildren are growing up in?


My thoughts are with all families whose lives were changed this morning.
