First Presidency Expresses Love, Support to Victims of the Terrorist Attacks in France

Last evening, November, Friday the 13th, six simultaneous terrorist attacks in Paris, France left at least 129 dead and 352 injured, according to CNN. In the wake of this horrible tragedy, the First Presidency made this official statement, expressing their love and support to the people of France:

"With people around the world, we mourn today as we consider the horrific tragedies that have occurred in Paris. We pray for those affected, for their families and loved ones, for the leaders of nations and most especially for the people of France as they struggle to recover from the violence and loss they are feeling so deeply. We have directed that flags on Temple Square be flown at half staff, and that the French flag be flown here as an expression of our love and support for them. In these hours of uncertainty and despair, we ask members of the Church everywhere to join with us in our prayer that the peace of the Savior Jesus Christ will provide comfort, healing, understanding and hope."
