|TOUR DE BIFF - Paris, November 2013|
Today several of my friends - friends I met through our shared love for music - are traveling to gigs. They keep going and it is the right thing to do. We go to shows because we love music, because we love sharing the experience of live music, because we love to travel and meet our friends and new, like minded folks. This is how I met lots of my friends. When we do this and become friends with our gig mates we do not care which country they come from, if they are rich or poor, young or old, black or white or anything else and in between nor which religion they have. Just like it should be.
So in the name of those who lost there lives last night we will keep going, we will sing and dance together with our favorite artists and not let the darkness win. Because ..... LIGHT SHALL BREAK AND BRING A BRIGHT SKY!
And while we are on it ... what we have seen last night and much worse is what those refugees are fleeing from - threatened and chased away from their homes and loved ones often by the very same terrorists. Do not forget this and let humanity and not fear and hate win.
You cannot take this away from us ...
