The Attack on Paris

The attack on Paris sucks.  And it sucks more for a couple of reasons than generally.
.
1. The people of Paris are warm-hearted (albeit it with a attitude towards non-French speakers :-), and to strike them on a Friday night was tough.  To strike families, couples, loved ones was terrible.
.
2. One of the attackers (i have read) had a Syria refugee ID from Greece.  This is exactly what the "no - immigrants" people have been warning would happen.  So far it is 1 out of 4 million refugees, but it will changed the discussion (at least with our system of politics as theater).
.
3.  My heart goes out here.  It isn't like Nepal or even Syrian where donations can help with a disaster, man made or natural.  Parisians don't need money or anything physical.  So I give them my thoughts and this picture below.
.
It is a picture of the Museum of Man, you can sit on the terrace (between the two towers) and look back at the fountains or past them to the Eiffel Tower.  But these French have been trying to understand what it means to be a human, both morally and philosophically for hundreds and hundreds of years.  Being human isn't just about killing innocent people, it is about building a world and a life.
