I have been away from the news media so didn’t catch the awful shootings in France, but my initial thought was how it puts our lives in perspective.
How our petty disputes and problems seem so small by comparison.
Sadly, there is a nasty tendency among bloggers to exploit the deaths of innocents.
Instead I think we should send our condolences to the school and the families involved, whilst we get a better picture of what happened:
BBC News covers it:
“A gunman has opened fire on a Jewish school in the French city of Toulouse, killing three children and an adult, police say.
At least two people were also injured in the attack outside the Ozar Hatorah school in the north-east of the city.
Police are hunting for the gunman, who witnesses said was riding a black scooter.
The attack comes days after three soldiers were shot dead by a man on a scooter in the same part of France.”
La Point has more.
The Guardian too.
I will update this post later on, as more news becomes available.
