We are angered and saddened to hear of the tragic terrorist attacks in Paris, Beirut and Baghdad… horrified… not terrified. This is not an isolated act .  It is a worldwide tragedy and each of us must take a stand against this madness fueled by hatred. When any of our neighbors are attacked, it is an attack on us all!  We must demand action from ourselves and our world leaders to take aggressive measures to stop terrorism.  We are expressing our deepest compassion, support and prayers to the families and loved ones of the people of Paris, Beirut and Baghdad. Whether on home turf or in Syria, Israel or the Ukraine, our prayers go out to all countries that are effected by the evil of terrorism.

God is with you and you will arise victorious!
