Paris-one year later

Paris-One Year LaterA moment to remember.png

It is with a heavy heart that I write this post. Today, November 13th marks the one year anniversary of the attacks on Paris that resulted in countless deaths of innocent men, women, and children.

Using massive shootings and bombings as their weapons the terror group Isis caused chaos and terror in the streets of Paris. One of these bombings took place at the Stade de France, where France was playing against Germany at the time.

At the same,  there was  an attack on a  cafe called Le Petit Cambodge, resulting in several more deaths.

You can go to the BBC website to see in further detail what occurred on this horrific night.

For me, this is something that will always live in my memory. I was lucky enough not to have to experience it first hand, but my fellow French had to endure it. The loss of lives breaks my heart and makes me wish there was something that I could do.

Aside from declaring war on this terror group myself, the one thing I can do is continually bring awareness that this happened and could happen again, to anyone.

Those who lost their lives on this day, you are in my thoughts and in my prayers. I pray  your family has found some way to move on, or at least to carry on. I pray that the world is watching your back, France and that one day we can finally bring this group to justice.

*I will only refer to this group by their name once. I refuse to acknowledge them by the name they gave themselves because to me that implies respect. 

So, please take a moment today and thank whoever you pray to that you are safe. That France is safe, and that we continue to be safe.
