On the August 21st it is celebrated the first International day of Remembrance of and Tribute to Victims of Terrorism. On this day Victim Supoort Europe presents a video-poem in honour of all those affected by terrorist attacks.
The poem “In the Light and the Dark”, written by an ambulance technician who responded to the 22nd of March 2016 attacks at Zaventem airport in Belgium, was an expression of concern for those still dealing with their experiences and a plea for the necessary preparation, recognition and support. It reflects the attentive and supportive environment she had. She was fine, but many others continue to suffer. The poem holds true today as much as it did then. Recovery comes at its own pace and no-one should be alone along the way.
This video-poem is dedicated to those who have suffered and lost, and to the family, friends and others who were there to support them.
