Let there be light..........

Two suicide bombers successfully detonated their cargoes of death in a busy neighbourhood in the southern suburbs of Beirut yesterday evening. Forty innocent men, women and children lost their lives, around 200 people were injured; it all could have been so much worse but for a man called Adel Termos, who prevented one bomber from entering a mosque, his bravery cost him and his daughter their lives but saved many others.
We watched the horror unfold on TV in the safety of our home, thinking of those families being suddenly torn apart and changed forever.
We have to have hope.
A very beautiful and peaceful photo to show against the horror that unfolds in your territory! Didn't hear about Adel Termos - deserves a medal! fav

I've only just heard about the attacks in Beirut, and then in Paris. What has this world come to? I love your photo though, the colours are amazing.
