Extinguishing Darkness

Wise words at a terrible time.



Two days ago, we all watched in horror as Paris was attacked.  Our collective hearts broke as terrorists, with no regard for life and full of evil, killed over 100 people and wounded hundreds more. As more images filled the screen I felt my heart harden more and more.  Before I knew it, I was seething and internally cheering when politicians began to openly state we would destroy all who were part of the attack.
