Just a few weeks ago we experienced a major terrorist attack that claimed the lives of many people. Moms, brothers, sisters, uncles, cousins etc were lost and many family members in pain. Being in Australia, I was able to see how they reacted to the situation. Many were surprised because something like that is not common in Australia. They never experienced something so terroristic in modern times. But I will say one thing. Even though they don't know what it feels like during the acts of terror the pain was felt. To show respect and unity they changed the color of the world renowned Opera House to the Paris flag. This sight was just breathtaking and sent chills down my back. When one is hurt we all hurt and that's what SHOULD connect us as a people.
