It is extremely hard to write when tears are streaming down your face. I am of French heritage myself, and I was preparing a comment for another site, however, needed to vent among friends.

The far right seem to revel in their apparent delight of the burden and plight of those less fortunate. Some of them are making nasty remarks about the tragedy in France this evening on Twitter and other sites. I mourn the deaths that happened in the nation of my heritage. Snide remarks and constant references that they brought the attacks upon themselves are crude, rude and demonstrate the vile inner spirit of some people. Good deeds and generosity are what shows our humanity. The French have always been a generous and kind people, however, they can be pushed to the breaking point too:
"French president to a grieving nation: "We will lead the fight and it will be merciless" LINK
IMO, ISIS has committed suicide that will be meted out to them on multiple fronts. They will reap what they have sown. I am in absolute shock that Paris has had to experience such terror for their good will. ISIS takes no prisoners except to murder later; the French should deal the pure evil of these attacks with the same amount of vigor. I have read on multiple sites that Saudi Arabia has been supporting ISIS; if that is indeed the case, they must stop immediately or also be held accountable.
  • More than 150 people are feared to have been killed in a series of devastating attacks across Paris on Friday evening.
  • All the attackers are believed to have died, police say, although authorities continue to search for accomplices who might still be at large.
  • Shootings and explosions were reported in six locations across the city, including the Stade de France in northern Paris, where two suicide attacks and a bombing took place as the national team played Germany in a friendly football match.
  • As many as 120 people died after a mass shooting inside the Bataclan concert venue, where three attackers also died after detonating suicide belts.
  • Shootings also took place in restaurants and other sites in the centre of the city. Precise figures for the dead and injured are not known.
  • President Fran├žois Hollande, who was at the Stade de France at the time of the assaults, said:

We are going to lead a war which will be pitiless. Because when terrorists are capable of committing such atrocities they must be certain that they are facing a determined France, a united France, a France that is together and does not let itself be moved, even if today we express infinite sorrow.

My Bio is as varied as my life. In 2012, my twin sons murdered a Journalist in Pensacola, Fl., for 100K worth of "Magic The Gathering" playing cards and buried the body in my backyard. I was once a regular writer here, but PTSD from my son's (more...)
