Antoine Leiris, wrote a defiant letter to ISIS after the mother of his son, was killed in the Bataclan terror attack.

Antoine lost the love of his life in the terror attacks and writes to the “dead souls” telling them he and his son will eschew hate and anger.

“you will not have my hatred”
Friday night you stole the life of a being of exception, the love of my life, the mother of my son, but you won’t have my hatred. I don’t know who you are and I don’t want to know, you’re dead souls. If this God for which you kill indiscriminately made us in his own image, every bullet in the body of my wife will have been a wound in his heart.

So no I don’t make you this gift of hating you. You have it coming yet but respond to hatred by the anger that would be giving in to the same ignorance that made you what you are. You want that I’m afraid, that I look at my fellow citizens with a look suspicious, I sacrifice my freedom for security. Lost. Same player still plays.

I saw her this morning. Finally, after many nights and days of waiting. She was as beautiful as when it is a party this Friday night, as beautiful as when I fell head over heels in love there are more than 12 years. Of course I’m devastated with grief, I admit this small victory, but it will be short-lived. I know she will accompany us every day and that we will find ourselves in this paradise of souls free to which you’ll never have access.

We are two, my son and I, but we are stronger than all the armies of the world. I did not more time to devote yourself, I must join melvil who wakes up from her nap. He has 17 months ago, he’ll eat his taste like all days, then we’ll play like every day and all his life this little boy will make you the affront to be happy and free. Because No, you won’t have his hatred either.”
