    While terrible, the incidents in Paris were confined to a very small part of the north east of Paris, 10th and 11th arrondissements and not near the main tourist or historic center which has been well protected for years by armed patrols of soldiers. Maybe the armed patrols were effective shunting the terrible incidents elsewhere. The media has exaggerated the extent of the terrible area of carnage. Paris or London or New York or Sydney or college campuses in America and other major cities are all about as vulnerable and as safe at the same time as each other. Don't let these events affect you too much; grieve and keep living in honor of those innocents whose lives were taken too soon.
