Our sympathies and thoughts are with them. We will show our solidarity and support for France and Paris by continuing to write about its beauty, culture and history which have given us all so much pleasure and joy over the years.

    ISIS is responding to the attacks by France. But they also want to destroy the way of life of the West. So if we change our way of life (i.e., curtail our freedoms), then they will have won. We must walk a fine line between preserving our way of life and protecting ourselves, but we must continue to live our way of life to the extent possible. I watched an interview with a French security officer who said that this attack was a "proof of concept" attack; now that ISIS proved this type of attack is successful, they will attempt to export it all over Europe and the US. So, as ISIS becomes more emboldened, this will continue; we must hold firmly to what we have. I admire the French for their resolve, and I pray for their healing. Je suis Paris.
