In times of alarm and tragedy, society can pull together and achieve great things. It was reported that earlier this morning whilst the shoots and explosions were taking place in France’s capital, taxi drivers were doing something wonderful – turning off their meters and giving people free rides to safety.
Rather than just looking after themselves, they put the Parisian people first and took steps to get them home safely. It has been reported that at least 120 people were killed inside the concert hall where Islamic extremists held innocent people hostage.
Our thoughts are, of course, with everyone in Paris during this terrible tragedy.
