Nick John's Week 133: Paris 7/1/15

Picture 1

Picture 2

Nick John’s Picture Choice: Both

Title: Paris 7/1/15

The pictures this week, in light of Wednesday’s events, made me consider the contrasting futures we face. As stark a contrast as between high summer and deepest winter.

Just in case you were in doubt
Enemies exist; you must act, not wait for others

Stand up for what you believe in
Understand, we have built something rare and precious - but fragile
In all you do or say, in how you live, uphold our values
Someone must do it - if not you, then who does it for you?

Civilisation rests on fundamental principles, not fundamentalist ones
Hate, or the shadow of  violence, must never triumph
Argue passionately for what you believe in, but
Respect those who peacefully oppose you
Love others who value and defend your freedoms
Individuals actions, joined together, will shape our common future
Each of us has a part to play - will you play yours?

Despite his Mother telling him not to, Nick continues to make things up.
