My Heart is Breaking

There has been a horrific terror attack in Nice, France. People were celebrating Bastille day watching fireworks. A man plowed down over 100 people with a truck. Then he started shooting. There are at least 75 dead and many injured. There are stories about hostages in hotels and people are hiding wherever they can. There is also a report of a fire near the Eiffel Tower. It is another sad day for mankind. My heart is breaking for the world.
The southern French city of Nice was on lockdown.

Ah but @GardenGerty it is unfortunately the mind and ego that control the level of compassion (sometimes associated with the heart of the matter), if any, a human will demonstrate

@akalinus I find myself constantly praying for sanity to return to this world. My prayers go out to the people in Nice. Oh, yes I read that the singer Rihanna was having dinner nearby when this happened and of course everyone got worried about her being there.

Well it is even more biologically baffling when one is born a 'monster' @Hatley who demonstrates very little use of the frontal lobe God gave us to use !

@cindiowens You know, I wonder the same thing. I also wonder if any of us will be here long. I guess we need to spread as much good around as we can.

@akalinus no because terror sends a ripple effect around the world causing us all to fear a little

@zarlamain I was at a bank today. The lady I talked to said she is afraid when she goes to work because someone might start shooting. I said she has a guard standing near her and she said one guard would not be much good if there was an attack. People are afraid.

I feel so sad to hear of this horror at this time as France has been through so much already. RIP poor people I have heard now that they were affiliated with terrorists.

The sad part is that these are innocent people just going about their business. It is not fair that they are victims because of something they have no control over.

Since this incident, the body count has steadily climbed around the world. It is heart wrenching to hear of the next attack. Germany, Florida, Tokyo, it just goes on and on.

@akalinus i have a feeling that it wont be long before we hear of an incident to where a regular person, citizen fought back and kills a terrorist. and it wont surprise me if the person who kills a terrorist gets arrested and treated like a criminal.

I had not heard this about a fire at the Eiffel Tower or rather, near it. So many troubles. I prayed last night. I guess I need to pray a lot more.

The fire was from a car accident on the Alma bridge. The police prefecture wrote a tweet asking people to stop to propagate false information about it on the net.
