On September 11th 2001, after the dreadful terrorist attack against the USA, around 3000 kids where left to bare the awful reality of losing a parent, in some cases, both parents.
Be that as it may, they have diverted their misfortune channelled this energy into inspiration, and have now recorded a message for all the victims of the terrorist attack against Paris. The message is conveyed by Terrease Aiken, who was only 8 at the time of the 9/11 assaults, Juliette Candela who was 6, Joseph Palombo – then 12 years of age, and Francesco Picerno , who was 9 at the time.
‘People of Paris keep spreading love; you don’t need to shy away from living your lives. You should never be afraid of any terrorist because I’m telling you that terrorists are more afraid than you are’, the message begins. ‘Nobody can imagine what you are going through right now and the emotions going through your heart. But you don’t want to live your life with hate.
Having strength, and composing a message of hope, inspiration and positivity during a time of unthinkable terror, the message continues: ‘I do believe that it is up to us now because we know what anger and hatred looks like, and we can’t add to that anymore.
‘People look at you and they shouldn’t see tragedy, they should see hope because you mean so much to society and you’re so valuable. For you to be happy is just what everybody wants to see and it‘ll give everybody hope.
‘That’s the best attack I think, you can have on a terrorist or a terrorist group or anything.
‘It’s to smile, and to show your teeth and to just love life.’
