Europe is shaken up right now, Paris is not that far away from where I live, and panic in Europe is enormous. It really is sad, what is going on in this world. @alywoah
This is terrible. I was just about to post an article here about how Europe needs a major reality check, but I am going to postpone that now. My heart is with the victims and with the people of Paris.
I saw this. I was out of it for about 24 hours. (ER. Food poisoning and Dehydration.) But when I woke up, my phone was blowing up about this. It's awful. Just horrible. :(((
