The Daily Telegraph (Sydney) - - Letters -

Ter­ror­ist at­tacks are re­gret­tably now so fre­quent that for many peo­ple the de­tails of these atroc­i­ties tend to blur to­gether. For those who have lost loved ones to ter­ror­ism, how­ever, the pain is last­ing and ag­o­nis­ingly acute.

Syd­ney mum Ju­marie Cad­man was walk­ing along a Barcelona street in Au­gust with her seven-year-old son Ju­lian when ter­ror­ist Younes Abouyaaqoub struck. His van killed Ju­lian and 12 oth­ers and left Ju­marie with a bro­ken pelvis and shat­tered legs.

The heart­break of re­turn­ing to her Lalor Park home with­out her son was in­com­pa­ra­ble. Ter­ror­ism’s vic­tims suf­fer eter­nally.
