When news broke on Friday that there had been a series of attacks in Paris, France, people hoped it was not another act of terror. But many people’s fears were confirmed when ISIS claimed responsibility for the attacks that killed 129 and wounded 352 at six separate locations throughout the city.
The whole world is now standing in complete solidarity with France during this horrific time. With investigations into the terrorists’ attacks moving forward and the President of France declaring war and denying Syrian refugees into the country, it is really time for some reflection on the idea of peace and unity throughout the world.
Paris, you are in our thoughts and our hearts, and we sing for you, for peace and we stand as one.
