A Tear Shed For Brussels
Posted On Mar 22, 2016
Our hearts and prayers are with the beautiful nation of Belgium. Let us combat such somber times with peace, hope…and lace. This morning, Brussels experienced a tragedy that has affected our nation at large. We, at New You, wanted to use one of Brussels’ well-known symbols as a way to spread love and light during this time of grief.
Brussels lace is well known for its delicacy and beauty. The fine thread and the steady hands create a true masterpiece.
The Belgian capital experienced three explosions between the hours of 8:00 and 9:00 am. While this tragedy is still undergoing extensive investigation, Belgian officials believe that approximately 30 people have died in the attacks—10 at the airport and 20 at Maelbeek metro station. Additionally, over 200 people have sustained injuries.
Updates have shown that ISIS has claimed responsibility for the coordinated attacks. Officials are on the hunt for one of the men responsible for the attack at the airport, and they are asking for help from the public to identify the suspect.
Just like its lace, so masterfully intertwined, we know the people of Belgium, united and hopeful, will triumph through this adversary.
