Here we are again, staring into the abyss of tragedy, horror, and stupidity. Why? many of us ask, why does this happen, how does someone get brainwashed to take the lives of innocent people? and the worst part of it is, those people think they’re doing a good thing, that it’s justice, that their religious beliefs are the only accurate beliefs and if you don’t agree you will be sentenced to a horrible death. I’m sure there are ulterior motives to their killings as well, but whatever the reasoning, it’s WRONG! it’s selfish, it’s immoral, and soon they will be faced with the ultimate justice that actually matters!… If only we could take these terrorist by the shoulders, give them a good shake, maybe a smack on the face, to wake them up and get them out of their mental- brainwashed state into the real world (like those old-time movies that shake and smack the bad out of people and bring them back to reality and to a good person).
So today’s post is about the good sticking together, to make a united front, to not shy away or coward and shrink down to size, BUT rather stand up to the terrorist, let them know we will not be defeated, that the GOOD will prevail, still show love to everyone, and support one another… Nous Sommes Unis!
So What Happened In Nice, France?
All News by THE ASSOCIATED PRESS (CIARAN FAHEY and ELAINE GANLEY) Bloomberg.
Nice, France (AP) — A Frenchman of Tunisian descent drove a truck through crowds celebrating Bastille Day along Nice’s beachfront, killing at least 84 people, many of them children. The slaughter ended only after police killed the armed attacker in a hail of bullets.
French leaders on Friday extended the country’s 9-month-old state of emergency and vowed to deploy thousands of police reservists on the streets after Thursday night’s massacre of pedestrians leaving a fireworks display for France’s national independence day.
Wassim Bouhlel, a native of Nice, told The Associated Press he saw a truck drive into the crowd, then its driver emerged with a gun and started shooting.
“There was carnage on the road. Bodies everywhere,” he said.
Police identified the attacker as a 31-year-old Nice resident and said he had drawn a gun on them. The truck’s windshield was riddled with bullets.
No group has claimed responsibility for the carnage, but French officials called it an undeniable act of terror. The assault on revelers in the southern French city rocked a nation still dealing with the aftermath of two attacks in Paris last year that killed 147 people and were claimed by the Islamic State extremist group.
“Terrorism is a threat that weighs heavily upon France and will continue to weigh for a long time,” Prime Minister Manuel Valls said after French President Francois Hollande called an emergency government meeting Friday. “We are facing a war that terrorism has brought to us. The goal of terrorists is to instill fear and panic. And France is a great country, and a great democracy, that will not allow itself to be destabilized.”
