Today, I am sad, for Paris, and the world

All of my social media are flooded with support for the victims of the terror in Paris last night, Friday the 13th of November 2015. I want to share some of the pictures I’ve found scrolling down my Facebook this morning, and I also want to remind you all that we need to do more than pray, by sharing something that a friend of mine posted on their Facebook:

Don’t waste a second of your time praying for Paris.

Instead, take practical steps in your communities to build bridges with different groups to prevent these sorts of horrific things from happening.

Prayer won’t achieve a thing, actively building bridges will.

Paris, the City of Love, has become the victim of terrible acts-

I hope you are all well. Let’s remember the victims and think about what we can do to help, and prevent something like this from happening again.
