Friday the 13th is considered universally as the day for bad luck. That day was not particularly a good day for myself. My bad day though, was different from many others around the world. Specifically for the folks out in Paris. Japan also had concerns of its own.
As you may already know, Paris had gone through an awful terrorist attack. Their second within the past year. Over 150 people were killed at different points in the city. Specifically in Bataclan Hall where an Eagles of Death Metal concert was taking place. Also, outside of Stade de France where a soccer match between the French and German national teams took place. Hostages were taken, AK-47’s were used, suicide bombers were involved, and panic spread throughout. This is considered the bloodiest attack on France since World War II which was quite a while ago.
On the flip side, Japan was going through some concern themselves. An Earthquake rated with a magnitude of 7 hit off the south west coast of the country. This then triggered a Tsunami warning for some of the nearby islands/landmarks. In 2011, a similar situation had happened where over 18,000 were either dead or missing. Over 200,000 people since then have yet to even return to their homes. Luckily, no tragedy came out of this. The Tsunami ended up being a small one and the warning had been lifted for the southern-west coast of Japan. So everything turned out good on that end.
However, the citizens in Paris will be unfortunate have their year begin and end in torment which is sad and depressing. Another negative in this is that people regardless will have their say on the situation. I say negative because most people won’t be saying the right things. They’ll not want to sympathize, instead the senseless hot takes will be in full effect about anything related to the situation. So after observing and hearing all I’ve heard throughout the day. Here are some of my brief takeaways.
That’s all I have to say. Keep calm all and pray for better day.
