Pray for Paris

Pray-for-Paris

Sat here bleary eyed after staying up most of the night watching events unfold in my beloved Paris. I can’t express the despair I felt at first when it was reported that bombs had gone off outside the Stade de France, then shootings in a cafe, a mall – then absolute horror at the situation at the Bataclan music hall. I don’t know who is responsible for this atrocity, or why they did this to the innocent people of France, I am horrified and repulsed by it – but I am not afraid. I will be in Paris next month  , I will not be quaking in my boots and stay in England. These acts of violence make me more determined to be seen to live my life without fear, and not bowed by their vile acts against humanity. That is all.

I don’t know how to help, but I found the emergency numbers for quite a few embassy’s located in France, which might be useful if you have friends of relatives that you are concerned about:
