The Sunday Post #58 – Weekly Wrap-up
Welcome to my Sunday Post. Thank you to Kimba over at The Caffeinated Reviewer, who is hosting this weekly event. It is the perfect opportunity to share what happened here on my own blog, as well as some of the happenings elsewhere in the Blogosphere.
This is a sad, sad weekend! On Friday evening there were several terrorist attacks in Paris, and I am shocked, still. I don’t even have any words in order to share how awful I think this is, so instead, I’m just sharing a lot of love and many hugs with the French 🙁 I spent most of the day yesterday crying for the horror and the loss of life, while at the same time being incredibly impressed by the Parisians opening their doors and homes to people in need for a place to spend the night. In the face of great adversity, they managed to stay open and loving, sharing comfort and a place to stay. Then, yesterday, there was this man who brought a piano to the front of Bataclan, where he played Imagine by John Lennon for the crowd that had gathered to show their respects and share their grief.
Later in the day, there was a new hashtag on Twitter, #MeetParisians where several people living in Paris invited tourists to their homes for a meal, a cup of tea, a movie, a glass of wine – so they wouldn’t be alone and bored while visiting. And some tweets were stating it would be easier to be together in their fear, rather than alone and scattered.
