I just can not understand that i woke up to a notification from Omni about explosions in Brussel's airport. It has been hours since I first hears the news and I still have a hard time understanding what has happened. There are no words that can describe what's going on inside my head right now. I myself was walking around in Brussel's airport just this Sunday, I walked around on Brussel's streets and I passed by the metro station that now is in total chaos.
It feels unreal that I sit here in my student dorm room in little Lund and at the same time people that I've been riding the same tram as or seen on the streets, or bumped into on the streets are in total emotional chaos. What if any of the people I talked to at Starbucks or the man we asked for directions was in the middle of this, where are they now? What are they doing? Are they alive? All the tourists I saw everywhere who saw and photographed the same things I did are in a hospital somewhere just because they were going to go back home today.
Of course I also think about the people who were at the party we attended. Are they okay?
I'm just so tired of all of this. I don't want tot see news about explosions and death tolls increasing in Paris, Ankara, Lebanon, Brussels.. I'm done with all of this and I'm tired of all the disgusting comment that I see on Facebook and other social media. "Close Europe's borders for good", "look what type of people we're letting in to our countries", "this is the type of things that happens when muslims are allowed anywhere they want". Like no, shut up. Open up our borders, let the people who want to escape oppression and horrors come to a country where they can feel that they can find happiness and safety. How can a grown up person say that a whole people, a whole religion is responsible for all theban things that happen? How can a grown up person talk about other humans and treat other human beings like this?
