I usually try to stay away from news and politics in my posts, but the horrendous acts perpetrated in Paris can only be met with unanimous condemnation: I am close to the French people in mourning their dead.

I can’t believe whoever planned those attacks can really think such acts will in some way help their cause more than they will actually hinder it, as violence will just call for more violence, and no higher truth should ever justify harming innocent people.

I can already see the shameful, instrumental exploitation of this tragedy by the usual parties. I’m gonna be sick.
