A message of hope from Brussels

I hope

 

That I can

 

Go to a concert

 

Music makes me

 

HAPPY!

 

I want to

 

Play football

 

Without being afraid

 

Along with my friends

 

To watch the Red Devils

 

And then to sit on a café terrace

 

Or to go something nice to eat

 

Without afterwards

 

The whole world

 

Knowing about it

 

I want to

 

Go to school

 

Safely!

 

And talk

 

To Mohamed, Laura and Boris

 

So that we

 

Can share

 

Our sadness

 

And talk together

 

About our dreams

 

We have so much to share

 

Because we live

 

Here in Brussels

 

We have a life

 

Together

 

We have a

 

Multicultural strength

 

I hope

 

That the

 

Fear and

 

The hate

 

Don't destroy

 

Our love and friendship

 

Because what happens in

 

Beirut

 

Paris

 

Kenya

 

And in so many

 

TOO MANY

 

Other places

 

Hurts us

 

In our hearts

 

What we want to expel

 

Is not the refugees

 

Who are afraid of violence

 

But the madness

 

That refuses to recognise life

 

I am Christian

 

And not a terrorist

 

I am Muslim

 

And not a terrorist

 

I am atheist

 

And not a terrorist

 

I am Jewish

 

And not a terrorist

 

Terrorism has no

 

RELIGION

 

We

 

believe

 

in YOU

 

And in ME

 

And in peace

 

Worldwide
