Following my request to the Council the flag was lowered to half mast. The tragedy of the Brussels bombing and attacks elsewhere in Europe are an attack on us. We need to stand together with the citizens in the rest of Europe by expressing our solidarity
No man is an island,
Entire of itself,
Every man is a piece of the continent,
A part of the main.
If a clod be washed away by the sea,
Europe is the less.
As well as if a promontory were.
As well as if a manor of thy friend's
Or of thine own were:
Any man's death diminishes me,
Because I am involved in mankind,
And therefore never send to know for whom the bell tolls;
It tolls for thee.
