Another terrorist attack.
People are dead in Egypt. Lebanon. Iraq. And now Paris.
People are afraid all over the world. I am afraid. Where and when will the next attack occur?
Rationally there’s no reason a terrorist would target me. I’m a nobody. Killing me would not make sense.
But terrorism is so insidious because it doesn’t make sense. Terrorists target people on vacation. Out for the evening. Shopping for food for their family.
I know today there are many who are calling to fight back, to wage war, to kill the enemy. Others are calling for world peace.
Not here please. This is a place to sit with the hurt felt for those who have suffered and lost.
This is a place to feel the fear.

THANKS for this! <3!
I think it’s important to remember that fear and hurt are normal human responses, and that it’s OK to sit with them. Those who deny their feelings and rush forward to exact revenge that frighten me.
Our Thoughts are with those affected by these attacks.xx Rachel and Speedy
We’re all affected. That was the intention.
It is terrifying and senseless and so so sad.
This is yet another reason why women should be running things around the world. If the day were ever to come when we took the reins and told the men to sit down and shut up, we MIGHT begin to see some peace around here.
The older i get the less i understand..fear and pain..and a great deal of heartache for humanity today..:(
It’s what I feel too. I wonder if there is even any path to peace, not that mankind would choose to walk such a path.
There is too much money to be made from hatred..it has become an industry..
God knows the answer. I wish he would enlighten us. Vive le Coeur de Paris!
I can taste the fear, and it is an insidious poison. I can also taste your humanity, and that my friend, is far more palatable. xxoo
I don’t believe fear is my best choice. I’m opting for compassion for all involved.
I really can’t believe France has fallen victim to two major terrorist attacks within a year. The first was essentially an attack on free speech. Now, it’s an attack on average, unarmed civilians. If ISIS (or whoever is responsible) thinks they’re going to change the world’s opinion, or achieve some kind of global domination with these antics, they’ll find themselves on the wrong end of a gun or a bomb. Terrorism NEVER accomplishes anything positive. It just creates more victims and animosity.
Very sad….very sad…..why always people fight each other………because of religions? because of where you are born? Very sacry……
