Praying for Paris

No blogging today, just prayers for the people in Paris. The lives lost, the families and friends grieving, the nation torn.

When things like this happen I don't know what to do, I don't know what to say. I try not to sit frozen on the couch staring at CNN's endless coverage, afraid to leave my house for fear. I want to be brave, I want to be poetic and inspirational but instead I draw my curtains and lock my doors, I turn off the TV, and hold my baby a little tighter.

I pray for Paris, I pray for all of us that we would seek understanding instead of hate. I pray that we would be strong and steadfast not explosive and unstable reactors to our fears. God Bless us all.

Peace for Paris by Jean Julien, London based graphic artist.
This is his response in the aftermath of coordinated terrorist attacks
that resulted in 
at least 127 deaths and more than 200 wounded.
