We Must Never Allow Fear Of Terrorists To Immobilise And Cower Us

The abominable attack on innocent people in the heart of Britain's democratic system, Parliament House, by a madman, Khalid Masood, remotely controlled by the ruthless and evil men who run  the so-called Islamic State (IS), has been rightly  condemned around the world.

That is as it should be. The barbarism and inhumaness of the cowardly,  evil and sadistic men who lead IS, must always be condemned in the strongest possible terms. 

Clearly, humankind must unite to save our one biosphere from the scourge of terrorism.

People of goodwill and good conscience everywhere must always stand with the citizens of nations that are attacked by religious extremists seeking to impose their will on free societies globally.

Naturally, our thoughts and prayers are with the families and friends of the victims of Khalid Masood's horrific and monstrous crimes in London.

Many Ghanaians based here in our homeland  Ghana hold British citizenship and also have members of different  branches of their family-trees living permanently in the UK holding dual citizenship.

A Britain that is safe from terrorism therefore matters to such Ghanaians. That is why this blog stands with the great and brave  British people against religious fanatics seeking to tyrannise them through senseless  acts of terrorism.

Perhaps in the final analysis we must all regard ourselves as frontline soldiers in the war against global terrorism - who could be killed instantly by a vicious, ruthless and relentless enemy: able to strike anywhere and at anytime on all five continents of the planet Earth.

That is the reality of our world today. And that is why no matter where in the world they strike humankind  must never allow extremists to stop us from carrying on with our normal lives.

It is said that the price of freedom is eternal vigilance.

We must all be watchful and observant when out and about in public spaces, wherever in the world we live. And, locally, we should stop taking our freedoms and the security of the Republic of Ghana for granted. We are not immune from terrorists attacks.

Above all, wherever in the world we live, we must never allow hate-filled and unhinged  terrorists to stop us from enjoying our lives - by refusing to allow them to immobilise us with fear. We will not be cowed by terrorists. Not ever. Period.
