Our message to the people of France, following the Paris Attack

"OUR thoughts go out to those affected by the horrific carnage in Paris, France, that happened on the 13 November  2015. This barbaric act has shaken the World and no words we can put down on here can convey what your nation must be feeling. We think people still have to reckon with the consequences of what happened. We hope that this horrific and barbaric act does not lead us to rash actions of retaliation, but 1 that will lead to peace. These terrorists should not break your spirit, as the whole of the civilised world is looking on these acts of violence, unleashed on your wonderful people, with disgust. We all express the same solidarity with your nation. No words that we can write will ever bring back those lost, or take away the pain of the victims' families, friends and loved ones. All we can offer is our thoughts and prayers, for the victim's families and friends during this sad time. I am sure that most of my compatriots echo these sentiments." Editor, Patrick Trollope BA (Hons).

As this edition is published, it is unclear if anyone from Merseyside has been killed or injured in it.

Have your say about the Paris Attack

We will run more messages sent to us by others in next week's edition. This is the 1st 1 we had been sent:-  

A message to those in France from the Former Liverpool Council Deputy Leader, Flo Clucas:- "If the attacks in Paris teach us anything, it is that Europe's leaders have to put aside differences and work together to defeat terrorism."

If you have any message you would like to send, please email us
