It's just a coincidence

Recommended Posts

On Friday 6th November:

My eldest son traveled to Paris via Eurostar, had a few hours in the city then caught the TGV to Strasbourg to meet a friend to spend the weekend there.

On the same night, my daughter and her boyfriend went to Birmingham to see his favorite band, The Eagles of Death Metal.

On Friday 13th November:

The same TGV my son was on the week before crashed, killing 10 people.

The Eagles of Death Metal were on stage at the Bataclan when the terrorists attacked and killed / injured so many young people.

My Mrs has been freaking out about all of this, racked with "What If's?"

What if Dan had been a week later and been caught up in the chaos?

What if he had been on that train?

What if the attack on the concert had happened in Birmingham?

It's just a horrible coincidence; if these things are going to happen, they're going to happen. No point in getting wound up about it and I wouldn't tell my kids to change their plans. As soon as you start doing that, the b*ggers have won.

We could point out the what ifs for any terror attack near our state of affairs.


It's best not get wound up on these "what ifs" and just get on with life as best as possible. What happened in Paris was tragic but this happens in every part of the world. Are we going to stop holidaying? No.


According to the Government, MI5 & MI6 have stopped 7 attacks this year (1 of which was in the last month)....... let that sink in for a moment, had only one of them got through....

      epic24 seems so long ago and I haven't been back since. Having taken the 3v3 Rocket League tournament, I'm hungry for more.
      And so...
      I have plans to return to epic27 with a new team behind me! I am incredibly excited as epic24 was my first taste of a LAN and I loved every minute of it. It's completely worth the 700 miles round trip and I'm ready to do it all over again!
