To the people - the good and the evil. To the soldier, the civilian, the martyr, the victim, the prophet, the liar, the honest and the leader.
When I heard about the terrorist attacks in Paris I was shocked - I just sat in my bed and wept. I wept with all the people who lost someone and all the people who had witnessed these terrible things. I was also amazed by how the world responded: The pictures of all the landmarks and buildings in the colours of the French flag. I think that this is what we need to do; Show unity and strength as we support each other in every way possible.
I am a Christian. So I started to pray. I prayed for all the victims, all the injured, all the children, all the families. And one thing that is written in the bible came to my mind. It says: “Jesus wept." He is weeping with us now.
During the day I checked my phone to stay up to date. As amazed as I was by the all support, I was shocked by all the hate. You can ́t fight hate with hate - that is like fighting darkness with darkness. You fight darkness with light and so you fight hate with love. We are all the same and we all stand together. We have to show strength. We should pray for the world. Pray for the victims and the attackers. And if we feel like we are not strong enough we can run to God and ask him for help.
Just keep praying for Paris and the world. There was no time when we needed it more.
