The acts of vile men,
Have shaken the world once more,
And nowhere is safe.
The lives that were lost,
And the ones fighting for theirs,
Will be in our prayers.
May Paris be blessed,
And restored to its beauty;
The killers, perished.
I woke up this morning to hear about the terrorists' attack on Paris as a Friday 13th act. How vile is this, to sacrifice hundreds of lives in a beautiful city. My heartfelt prayers go out to those who have departed in the heinous act, to those who are currently fightly bravely for their lives in the hospitals, and to the families / kin who have lost their loved ones in this tragic event.
This would be a dark and chaotic moment in France currently, to be violated by the acts of others this way - unexpected, cruel, and unprecedented. Please stay strong, Paris. Justice will prevail and the destroyers shall have their just deserts.
Still, a sad turn of events. It has shown us that nowhere is safe anymore, and humanity has but a faint grasp on reality right now.
