Prayers for the dead and wounded and God help them – hostages in Paris and friends and families of the same.
Ce soir nous sommes tous Français.
Coordinated attacks by terrorists at multiple locations in Paris may be something along the lines of France’s 9/11.
Saint Michael the Archangel, defend us in battle, be our protection against the wickedness and snares of the devil. May God rebuke him we humbly pray; and do thou, O Prince of the Heavenly host, by the power of God, thrust into hell Satan and all evil spirits who wander through the world for the ruin of souls. Amen.
I wonder if this is an anniversary of some significant event.
The borders of France have been closed.
My dear readers… always be alert about what is going on around you. Be situation-aware. Have a plan for how you will make contact with loved ones and, if necessary, get away from where you are and get home.
We can’t plan for every contingency, but we can practice being aware of the here and now. Know where your exits and protected places are, your defensive positions. Be thoughtful about the unforeseen.
The unimaginable is now quite imaginable.
Do you need to think about Get Home Bags and Bug Out Bags you can just pick up and move? As you may remember, since the flipside of self-defense is medical treatment, I’ve been collecting things through my lists to make also med kits for carry, for car, etc. I have some more items slated to arrive tomorrow (e.g., burn gel).
You don’t know when something might happen. Don’t fall into the trap of thinking that it can’t or won’t happen to your or to your own.
It always happens to someone else, until it happens to you!
Above all, examine your conscience and…
GO TO CONFESSION!
Now reports are coming in from reputable sources that tie these attacks to Islamic terror and ISIS. Je suis choqué!
We will soon know for sure, but I am betting that the attacks were not carried out by Canadian enthusiasts of Esperanto.
We all need to wake up.
