How devistating for the people of Paris to be constantly worried about where the next attack will happen. Last nights slaughter at a fireworks event took so many lives and many were children. What is happening to our world. I am so thankful that I live in Canada that so far has been safe from this kind of horror. My heart and prayers go out to all of the families who were injured or lost loved ones. God be with you all.

The footage I saw of all the bodies was devastating. Just when you think it can't get worse, it does. My hearts go out to all those affected.

What's wrong with our world?! Every time I turn on the news, it's filled with sadness, horror, terror, killings, etc etc. #Nice#Paris#Brussels#USA
Depressing & very sad.

The people who do these things, have no love in their hearts. They are trained to kill anyone who does not believe what they believe. I have seen documentaries where it showed warehouses full of very young children in training. They are brainwashed and taught how to use weapons to kill. It is a scary very sad world we live in now.

So many of those bodies laying on the street dead, were children. I pray that the government can find a way to put an end to all of this.

Amen to that. I fear for our upcoming generation. They will never no how beautiful things were in my early life. You didn't hear this type of thing on the news. You didn't have to lock your doors at night. Everyone was decent to each other. Why can't it be like that again.

(Before I respond, I'd like to say that my intention is not to offend or go against anyone who may have an opinion regarding this subject. This is my frustration speaking, a way for me to try to wrap my head around issues that I've been researching and questioning for some time now.)

My opinion, based on facts I've read, is this - If the governments wanted to stop any of this, they could start by actually defining who and what was responsible for these acts. They never will because in doing so, they would also need to implicate themselves, since they've all had a hand in helping the situation get to this point. All I've seen mentioned in the media so far is that they blame a "huge truck" for the massacre and that the driver was a "loner". I'm sorry, a truck did not kill those people - a radical extremist did. This is becoming a pattern with every terrorist attack. This lack of calling it what it is won't help in trying to stop it. What wasn't reported on mainstream media was that the truck was actually stationed on the promenade for 9 hours and before the attack. They say the driver was questioned and police eventually left him be. This is in a country that was supposedly on high alert for any terrorist acts, especially for the Bastille day festivities. Eye witnesses said to have seen police laughing and chatting in the streets while the massive truck was parked there throughout the day. The last terrorist act happened less than 2 months ago and a massive truck parked where it shouldn't be didn't raise any alarm bells? Very strange...

The media has been repeatedly saying that we'll certainly be seeing more of these tragic events and like France's president Hollande said, "we just have to accept them". So let me get this straight... I have to accept something that goes against my safety? This is not the life I'm willing to accept for myself or my family, nor my future children. Of course when they do strike again, rest assured your government will come to the rescue! I can hold my breath on that one...

I'm saddened when I think of the direction society in general is heading towards. I'm sick and tired of the whole "Let's use a hashtag on social media to show we're against this" trend. They certainly didn't get rid of Hitler and the Nazis (another example of extremism) with hashtags and flag-inspired Facebook profiles. I'm not saying that it's wrong to do so or that it's not a good way to help process these atrocities and unite as a people, but the problem is that our concern ends here and our lives go right back to normal until the next terrorist act happens, yet again. Is this the cycle we're accustomed to now? Just wait for the governments to do something while we just hashtag away? People need to do their own research and read the facts concerning what governments are actually causing to happen and then heroically saving us from. This doesn't seem like it's going to happen any time soon, especially not when the size of Kim K's boobs are more important than what's happening in our own backyards and not now that the Pokémon Go craze has people more worried about where Pickachu is hiding, than figuring out what's actually happening in the world around them. I don't blame the people who are playing the game - I blame those who promote and create this society of zombies. There is massive mind control being subjected upon us in order to not make us see what's really happening behind closed doors.

All I can say is that our future children will have one heck of a hard time living in a peaceful world if we just sit back and wait for things to magically happen. We need to be the difference between a safe life for all and one that's controlled for us, right down to where our feet will take us. The world needs to wake up otherwise, we'll soon find ourselves too close to these terrorist acts for comfort.

Sorry... I meant to say I "won't" hold my breath, not can.
