Today, I'm very sad. Yesterday, a woman was killed in England because of her engagement with the european causa. Her Name was Jo Cox, she left two children and a husband. He has called on people to “fight against the hatred that killed her”.
Here is the long version of the quote: "She would have wanted two things above all else to happen now, one that our precious children are bathed in love and two, that we all unite to fight against the hatred that killed her. Hate doesn't have a creed, race or religion, it is poisonous."
|High five for Europe!|
I am of that generation that benefited from the EU, I have been to most EU countries, I studied in two and worked in six of them, and the idea that those opportunities will not be available to the generation of our children saddens me greatly. More than that is the realization that we live in times of hate, fear and mistrust, in which bridges that were built over decades have lost all meaning ...
Please stay ... and then, we have to rebuild Europe on our shared european values (and not on the idea of pleasing the financial brontosaurus). Remain, and help making the EU a union for citizens along two simple principles: Humans are the measure of all things (the humanistic motto) and United in Diversity. The last sentence is by the way the 'slogan' of the EU that's never put forward, because the EU does a terrible job at communicating. Another thing that has to change.
