To be honest, I needed some time to fully comprehend what I was feeling and to fully comprehend what had happened. it was very difficult for me to understand why so many innocent lives had to be taken many of which were children,” she said in the video.
She further added, Terrorist attacks like these are unfortunately very unpredictable. They also seem to be completely out of our control and there seems to be very little that we can do about them. I do believe however that we can do one thing, we can unite and we can support a nation that has suffered tremendously in the past week.”
