Is anyone else feeling super down about this today? I am absolutely heartbroken over it. This time last week I was in Nice, France and can’t imagine something so terrible happening there.
Sorry to vent, but I just wanted to ask all of you to send out positive energy to those who are suffering today.

These lone wolf attacks are absolutely terrifying. It feels like it’s not safe to go anywhere anymore. It’s hard to imagine there’s any end in sight when it keeps happening over and over, and you’re fighting an ideology. These attacks are disgusting.

I’ve felt very down today too. I listened to it on the radio on the drive to work and was in tears. Very sad and frightening. Prayers to those involved and affected.

Such a celebratory day turned into a tragedy. My thoughts and prayers are with all effected by this terror and the other terrors and attacks worldwide. My heart breaks for the victims and their loved ones.

cblank181 : Yup, woke up, read the news, was so bummed out. Heard the news again on the radio – had to hold back tears on the way into work. Keep thinking about it all day.

Normally I am a very news aware individual and try to take things in with an objective eye and understand that there’s still good in the world. However; the news has been painful to watch or follow recently. Literally every day, there is something tragic that makes me wonder what type of world I really live in, where humans will do this to each other.

Mrs_Amanda : I think that is it, it just seems constant at the moment. Normally I can be rational and tell myself it isn’t all bad – but at the moment that just seems a bit too hard to do!

The news was so tragic and horrible, but sadly not as shocking as it would have been a few years ago or a few decades ago. This doesn’t lessen the impact of the tragedy by any means, but this type of thing is becoming frighteningly too frequent in our news and I’m deeply worried that this is by no means the end of it. Disillusioned and worried.

Last year, on the same date, I was in Nice in the very spot where the truck “attacked.” I had my children with me. I’ve been watching the news in absolute horror, thinking we could of been there THIS year but decided to hit Croatia instead, then pushed the whole vacation back to September. I won’t be bringing my girls this time. This is so so sad.

What a horrible tragedy. I’m sickened over all this hatred, violence and anger. It feels like it will never end.

I am 🙁 My boss and his family are in Nice right now and were less than a half mile from where it happened. Thankfully he responded to my e-mail immediately last night and let me know they were all safe, but very shaken.
I just want this violence to end. My Brother-In-Law is in Morocco heading for Spain and I worry about him, too.

Half of my family is in Paris, the other half in Nice. I’m getting maried there in 60 days. Everyone is ok but we are so so tired. I agree that technology is a big part of how and when news is shared but I am in utter disbelief at all the people on social media and media outlets thinking it is appropriate to share gruesome interviews and videos of the event.
I’m at a loss as to what we should all be doing now when it just keeps happening…

cblank181 : I don’t think I even have words to explain how I feel about what happened. Heartbroken. So many lives. So many people are left fighting for their lives too, and I hope so much that we don’t lose another. I love France, I’ve been about 30 times. I have so much compassion for them at the moment. I wish people everywhere, all over the world would stop ruthlessly killing.
brideprivee : I’m not so sure. To an extent I think it is appropriate. Last night I was at home on the sofa watching TV with my boyfriend, so safe and sound with a cat curled up at my feet. Texts started coming through from my boyfriend’s friend with photos. It happened right there in front of him. I can’t imagine how he felt at that time, though we’re relieved that he’s okay, so many people are not. I went to bed feeling cold and guilty. I’m there getting in bed to go to sleep, and all those poeple are dead and fighting for their lives. Sharing breaking news is one of the few things that social media is good for.
