I hope your week went well.
Here in Brussels, it was surreal, indescribable.
I am just thankful I am safe and alive, but I’m also sad and pained whenever I open the tv and see what hate made people do.
My only wish for now is that people get their senses right and see that killing unarmed innocent people around the world will never solve anything.
That airport is the one I always go to when travelling abroad.
That metro is the one my sister takes to go to school, the metro my uncle and aunt use to go to work. If my sister had taken the metro earlier, she could have been a victim of this horrible attack.
As soon as I heard that a bomb exploded in the metro, I had shivers and my body went into auto mode : I stood up and starting calling my sister. I wanted to cry as I couldn’t reach her.
After 10 minutes I finally heard my sister’s voice and I cried feeling relieved.
That was the most horrible feeling, thinking I would never see or hear her again, I can’t even …
My family was lucky and I’m thankful my sister missed that metro. Some unfortunately weren’t.
Despite all this, I shouldn’t let fear control my life and I should enjoy every minute of my life. Show my love to everyone I dearly care about.
Brussels is where I was born, where I grew up, studied and now where I am working. Where I became who I am.
I love this city as it is my “home”. We shouldn’t let these barbaric action into our heart, and let hate gain the best of us.
