Praying for Paris. Our hearts are breaking for and with you.

Sometimes I can’t find the words, Taylor Nation.

According to various reports, from 87 to 112 people were killed in the recent attacks on Paris where gunmen opened fire on civilians at a rock concert, a soccer game, and around four venues that were bars or restaurants. You can read more on CBC News. I’ve been left kind of speechless. There is no sense to make from it. Please give what you can to the French Red Cross.

If you want to go beyond hashtags and statuses, then I ask you think globally and act locally. We may not be able to do much to end the hatred and intolerance miles and miles away, but we can help it end in our community. Hatred is everywhere. We start at home. And we do it because we cannot claim to be ignorant of what it can potentially become in the end. I don’t want to simplify the deaths of over hundred people and the suffering of even more to a simple hallmark card wish, but I have little wisdom to share here.

Pray for the people of Paris.
