Not sure if anyone was personally affected, but always know that this is a safe forum where you can receive emotional support.
The world is a much different place than it was when I was growing up. My heart aches for all of you who are teenagers and young adults, because in my view, you have never really known the joy of a sense of safety. Terrorists have touched us on every continent except Antarctica, I think.
If you need a place to vent sadness, fear, anxiety -- or if you are being bullied on the Internet for your religion, nationality, skin color, etc., please know there are good people who do care.
Let's all band together and be the change in the world for good, kindness and light to others today.
