You guys probably know that I talk about the LGBT community on this blog on Mondays. Today, I will be changing things up. I will do my reaction to the France theater attack, that killed 100 plus people and it’s aftermath. I would admit that I don’t know a ton regarding what happened, the details, the specifics, so bear with me.
I just woke up from a nap, when I checked my Facebook like every other person does. this days. one person that I follow immigration activists Jose Antonio Vargas posted a picture of the Statue of Liberty, to the effect of I stand with France. Wow, what is happening I think to my self, I turn on the TV to CNN’s Anderson Cooper, I was devastated to see that just less than a year since the Charlie Hebdo massacre, here we go again.
I am thinking of what will happened to the Millions of Syrian refugees that just landed in Western Europe months ago. That they will certainly be blame for what happen in France as a natural response. Like what happen in America in the aftermath of the September 11 attacks. I will reassure people that they have nothing to do with this.
People should not suffer like this in the hands of terrorist. Though I believe that you can not fix terrorism with invading Iraq or Syria. The American government, President Obama should not authorized congress to use force in this situation. Because it will just escalate tensions between the US government and people In the region. Furthermore, let the French deal with this. It’s their war now.
Lastly, my deepest condolences and sympathies, goes out to the families of the victims of this terrible attack. The people who died are innocent, they are just watching a concert with their family and friends. Finally We should totally condemned the people who did this senseless attacks
