You may have seen the video of the little boy with his father, trying to make sense of the massacre in Paris last week.

“The flowers and the candles, … they’re there to protect us,” he concludes.

Michael Leunig put it this way:

There are only two feelings: Love and Fear
There are only two languages: Love and Fear
There are only two activities: Love and Fear
There are only two motives: Love and Fear
There are only two results: Love and Fear
Love and Fear.

The little boy chooses love.
He chooses beauty – flowers and candles.
These will protect us.
They are symbols of love.
And love always overcomes hate.
