I think that everybody knows by now about the terrorist attacks in Brussels at the airport and in a metro station. Usually people are believed to be rather uncaring, everybody lives for himself. But when it comes to a tragedy, we get a completely different picture of the people who surrounds us.
After the attacks, it warmed my heart to hear and see how people helped each other. As the public transport was completely interrupted lots of people living outside Brussels couldn't get home or leave the city. Spontaneously transport propositions appeared on a special Facebook page and a phone n° was given on TV and Radio, where people could ask to be picked up and driven home by volunteers.
Lots of women offered to pick up children from day care or school in case the parents were stuck in Brussels until very late.
Hospitals and the Red Cross had to stop blood donors for the moment, there were so many who offered their blood to help safe lives. They have to come back later
A bus driver stopped his bus when he saw a blind lady who seemed to be lost and helped her into the bus.
Others offered rooms for those who were stuck at the airport or elsewhere in Brussels and couldn't get home.
Brussels' Place de la Bourse became a focal point for grief, solidarity and resistance to Belgium's worst terror atrocity, as messages of support poured in from around the world on Tuesday night.
Old and young of all colors held hands together.
They left flowers, candles and even beer bottles, while scores scrawled colourful measures on the paving stones, many in English, paying tribute to the victims and calling for love and unity.
