Reclaiming Humanity

I went to the Reclaiming Humanity peace vigil on Tuesday evening, in City Park outside City Hall, with friends and colleagues from across the Bradford District.

We were gathered to stand together in peace and solidarity.

The horrendous events which are taking place across the world in places like:

– Iraq
– Ankara 
– Brussels
– Lahore
– Glasgow 

and beyond, all have the same things in common – hate, fear, terror, evil, mistrust and ignorance, but the most striking is the lack of humanity.

We, as people of Bradford, from a wide variety of backgrounds and beliefs, stood together as citizens, united in peace, to reclaim humanity.

Together humanity must overcome the evils of our world and reclaim our humanity.
