I woke up this morning to this horrible news of armed attacks in Paris. As of this time, the toll stands around 150 and might go up. I made sure that my friends in Paris are safe – but my heart sinks at the very thought of victims. May their souls rest in peace and may He give comfort to the hearts of their kin and kith.
CNN gives the latest update on this horrific incident and Facebook has a feature where everyone can mark their safety, for the benefit of those interested.
Incidentally, last week I was reading How to be Compassionate by Dalai Lama. It is very true and relevant at this moment!
Compassion is the dire need of society where we live in.
Terrorism is real. Terrorism is closer to you than you imagine. Stay safe. Be compassionate!
