Hey guys

During the night of the 13th of November in Paris 7 attacks happened with so far 100+ deaths.

You can have the exact details here www.bbc.com/news/live/world-eu… (and a bit everywhere else, but the bbc is a reliable source. Also France24.)

I'm ok, not living in Paris but I was there last week. I am devastated by what happened tonight but I'm safe.

France is right now in a state of emergency and we are all very shaken by the events and what could come next.

To everyone in France (especially Paris but not only), I hope you are all ok.

Please stay safe, do not give in fear and remember:

Terrorism has no religion.


::UPDATE::

It's been over 24H since the events that unfolded in Paris.

Testimonies are starting to appear here and there, all more heartbreaking and horrifying than the other. I've learned that one of my best friend's cousin died at the Bataclan and people close to me and my friends were wounded.

Sadly it took less than 24H for some people to start using the events for political agenda, to blame us for mourning our deaths, getting offended because the world is united with my country and (and I quote) "doesn't care about the rest of the world." As difficult as it is, there are terrible things that happen everywhere everyday in the world. Just because we are today mourning the 129 lives that were taken (and I'm scared that number will increase) doesn't mean we don't care. We do care.

But we are also shocked. I've been hearing all day long young people my age, even younger, late teens telling the horror they saw.
 
They wounded us. They killed our youth. They attacked the little pleasures in life. They attacked our values, our freedom. They attacked us for everything we stand for. Our identity. 
And most of us are thinking "it could have been me". I'm thinking it. Everyone is. And it still could. We are still under threat and have no idea what will happen next.

I'not saying the lives that we lost yesterday night in Paris are more important. We are mourning for countless lives lost throughout the world yesterday, Paris, Beyrut, Baghdad...

Out of respect of the people that died yesterday, please be respectful and not play the competition game on which lives are more important, which one we should emphasize.
Death is not a competition. Death is a tragedy.

This is not the time for drama. We've had enough of it already. It's not the time for political agendas, for debates about religion, nationalities and whatnot. We should be united in the face of the events that happened throughout our world these past few days.

My thoughts are with Paris, Beyrut, Baghdad and all the places in the world that face injustice.

Only together as a whole can we be strong against fear.

Thank you guys for your support and messages, it truly warms my heart in this difficult time.
