It has been a week now, I've done a lot of grieving and thinking, and to be afraid is something I will avoid.
I'll keep this short. The American killed in Paris was a close friend of mine. She was a very smart, caring, motivated, and resourceful person. She made a lot of friends easily. It's amazing to me how I thought I would be unattached to the attack in Paris, but I was gravely wrong. My friends and I will miss her dearly.
