My thoughts and prayers go out to Paris tonight

I had a different post planned for tonight but given what is happening in Paris right now I don’t think I want to write about anything except to share how sad I am for everyone impacted by the horrible events taking place in Paris tonight. There is not a lot of information out now so it’s too early to know everything that is going on but many people lost their lives tonight and it sounds like people are still in danger. CNN is playing in the background as I write this and the latest I have heard is that France is closing it’s borders and canceling flights into and out of France.

I know that I have blog readers all over the world, which means that some of your are in Paris. My thoughts and prayers go out to you, your families, and your friends. It is so sad to see something too terrible taking place in 2015 in what truly is a world class city.

At times like this I am reminded just how short life is and how important it is to cherish every single moment. You would think that as a society, in 2015, we would have evolved enough to live in a world where things like this are no longer a reality. Sadly we have not. Please take a moment to stop what you’re doing and send your thoughts and prayers to everyone in Paris.

    Also, to Francois, though I don’t think he is in Paris. It has to be psychologically devastating.

    My deepest condolences and sadness at what has occurred in Paris where I have friends of youth living in this city of light that has now become the blood and tears of the families of the innocent murdered by the fanaticism that have failed to stop our own rulers of this planet earth is hell and the life is in the blue sky.

    For all the innocents killed in Paris for them and they RIP

    Francois,

    we have to speak instead of being speechless. Just 15 days ago we had a blast in our capital Ankara that killed 102 people. a month before that 80 more.

    For Syrians and Iraqis these are daily life.

    What a coincidence that Kurdish terrorists group’s most wanted man by Turkish authorities, was in a conference in Paris last week. France is not deporting Kurdish terrorists but call them freedom fighters. So think again please when you want to be involved in terrorist activities in other countries. Think again when any

    It is time to speak loud and clear. We are in a world where anybody can hear about anything happening in any part of the world. Only thinking your own wealth and happiness will somehow have a bumerang or karma effect that will soon hit you.

    Many more can be said rather than simple “our feelings are with them” sentences. These do and will happen if “good” people of any faith dont act in unity.

    I’m learning this song in French – gorgeous!
    Dans la nuit de ce monde impie,
    Jaillit une lueur,
    Doux rayon, seuil d’un jour nouveau,
    Prélude à la splendeur.

    (REFRAIN)

    Perçant les ténèbres,
    Notre message est lumière,
    Chargé d’espoir, de vie.
    Tel une aube claire,
    Annonçant un jour prospère…
    Fin de la nuit.

    2. Il est temps pour les endormis
    De sortir du sommeil.
    Nous prions pour leur avenir,
    Offrons aide et conseils.

    (REFRAIN)
    Perçant les ténèbres,
    Notre message est lumière,
    Chargé d’espoir, de vie.
    Tel une aube claire,
    Annonçant un jour prospère…
    Fin de la nuit.
