I was in Paris during the recent attacks. Whilst deeply saddened, shocked and since troubled by it; we did come home. Hugged by friends and relatives, supported by wider networks and helped through this week at work by colleagues, we thank everyone for their concern. It helped more than you will know. Others weren’t so lucky and our thoughts are with them and their families.
Events in Paris last Friday night circulated round the world unbelievable quickly leading to all sorts of issues. For us, it meant trying to contact family and friends to let them know we were safe without alarming them. Work colleagues were sending messages of concern too. We responded as best we could, using social media where appropriate.
Clearly, people didn’t need to be there to be affected. Events like these affect many people in many different ways.
