Support Barcelona, Brussels, Paris, etc

I was very upset when Brussels was attacked, furious about Paris, London and other cities. What could I do? Nothing at the time. Wanted to buy a ticket and go and be a tourist and support the target cities but not practical at the time.

Glad I am going to Belgium net month to support our friends. Travel to Europe to show support.

Paris and Barcelona hardly are suffering from tourists, some residents think there are too many. I just really don't think that solves any terrorist problem.

The news has shown thousands of people on La Rambla in support of the people of Barcelona and Spain, people are walking down clapping in support. That's the kind of support I was thinking of.
