I used to be a regular business traveller to Paris when my territory was Europe & in fact, we still have an office very close to where this terrible atrocity took place.
I was in Chicago on 9/11 & woke up to the TV news as it unfolded. I used to travel to the USA so frequently that my young family didn’t even know which city I was in….. Being completely out of contact with them, and them not knowing, (no phones etc) had a profound effect on my daughter & even now, she still dislikes me travelling every week.
I was also in Monterrey, Mexico during the tragic shootings in the (oddly named) Liverpool shopping mall.
Agree 100% with Canuklad, Stevescoots and others.
How we can murder people in cold blood in the name of some spurious belief is beyond my comprehension.
