My thoughts and prayers are with the people of Paris as they mourn and try to heal. There’s nothing I can say here that hasn’t been said elsewhere, but I did want to acknowledge this city that needs our support right now, and it seems silly and inappropriate to talk about movies and television at the moment.
I was impressed by some of the helpful things social media offered yesterday–the Facebook check-in (I remember how hard it was to reach people in NY), and people on Twitter sending out Embassy information and letting people know where they could find shelter. I pray that loved ones would be able to reach each other and stay safe.
This senseless tragedy will continue to be all over the television, Internet and social media for weeks and months to come. In this age of constant information, it can be helpful to stay informed but it can also cause anxiety and stress to stay on the 24/7 news cycle. I think it’s important to know your limits if you suffer from anxiety.
I’ll pick back up with the blog on Monday, but this weekend I want to focus on the things that really matter. Peace and love to all.
