This news has been so terribly depressing. We are very busy in the office today and this week generally but it's still all we can talk about when we're not talking about work.
One reason it strikes so close to home is that we know people in that office. Not well, but we've exchanged emails in the past and one writer in particular we are worried about. We hear that someone we know there was shot but not killed but I can't see much from the list of victims about non-fatal injuries.
I guess information will become clearer over the next few days but let this not lead France into a right-wing hysterical reaction. Normal and human but it would be so unfortunate.
