#tokfriday: Faith, Ethics, and #PrayforParis

The RLS

On the evening on Friday, November 13th, the Islamic State (ISIL/ISIS) carried out a coordinated terrorist attack in Paris, France, killing at least 129 people. This was not the first attack ISIL has carried out, nor will it be the last. In addition, millions of refugees are fleeing war torn and terrorist strongholds throughout the Middle East and parts of Africa, seeking refugee status. The human and emotional toll of terrorism and extremism is overwhelming the world´s ability to respond.
