“We will have for us, eternity
in the blue of all the immensity
in heaven no more problems

God, reunite those who love each other”
Celine Dion paid a stirring, emotional tribute at the American Music Awards to the victims of the Paris attacks on November 13, with this Edith Piaf’s “Hymne a l’amour”, moving the whole theatre to tears.
The 130 victims in Paris – why should their lives be prematurely taken? And what about the suicide bombings in Beirut? And the downing of the Russian jetliner killing 224 people? And all the thousands who were being killed everyday because of differences of ideology ?
Who will sing for them? Who will give them tributes?
