Korean Idols share their thoughts for Paris through SNS #prayforworld
On Friday night, November 13th, six coordinated terrorist attacks took place in Paris. According to BBC News, there are currently 129 deaths and 352 injuries. Many people around the world, including various Korean celebrities, were quick to share their thoughts, prayers, and support instantly through their SNS pages.
While these posts below are about Paris, as you all speak to friends and family, communicate through social media about the terrorist attacks, other situations around the world that have been happening that do not receive the same media attention, are thankfully, being brought to attention as well.
This past April, 147 students were killed at a Kenyan University. A day before these attacks in Paris, in Beirut, Lebanon, there were two suicide bombings that left at least 41 people killed. On November 14th, tens of thousands of people in South Korea are injured in street rally protests. There is also an ongoing crisis in Syria.
Our thoughts and prayers are with everyone.
