A emotional pitch made by a husband who lost his beloved wife on the ill fateful night of 13/11 on his Facebook Page..
“Friday night, you took an exceptional life – the love of my life, the mother of my son – but you will not have my hatred. I don’t know who you are and I don’t want to know, you are dead souls. If this God, for whom you kill blindly, made us in his image, every bullet in the body of my wife would have been one more wound in his heart.
So, no, I will not grant you the gift of my hatred. You’re asking for it, but responding to hatred with anger is falling victim to the same ignorance that has made you what you are. You want me to be scared, to view my countrymen with mistrust, to sacrifice my liberty for my security. You lost.
I saw her this morning. Finally, after nights and days of waiting. She was just as beautiful as when she left on Friday night; just as beautiful as when I fell hopelessly in love over 12 years ago. Of course I am devastated by this pain, I give you this little victory, but the pain will be short-lived. I know that she will be with us every day and that we will find ourselves again in this paradise of free love to which you have no access.
We are just two, my son and me, but we are stronger than all the armies in the world. I don’t have any more time to devote to you; I have to join Melvil who is waking up from his nap. He is barely 17-months-old. He will eat his meals as usual, and then we are going to play as usual, and for his whole life this little boy will threaten you by being happy and free. Because no, you will not have his hatred either.”
Strong words & feelings from a husband, deepest sympathies for him and his son they both deserve a happy life ahead. You need courage and wisdom to bear the loss & certainly you would.
My deepest sympathy with all the families who lost their near and dear ones but there are thousands of such unheard stories in Syria, Iraq, Palestine, Burma, Beirut etc for which there are no sympathizers. This is a endless debate if they really need sympathies but They too lost their loved ones in the Air strikes conducted by US and its coalition. They too had feelings, someone was father or mother, brother or sister. But this arrogant world ignores them completely. This kind of incidents will not stop unless world removes this double standard. Just changing the facebook /whatsapp DP is not going to solve this problem, It would only help Facebook & Whatsapp in some way or other. Each innocent life is equally important whether it lost in Iraq or Syria, US or Mumbai.
Paris…… Stay Happy, Stay Safe, Stay Strong!!
