Those who read my post “Heartbreaking Truth”may recall my German son in law works as a translator for the Syrian refugees arriving in Germany. We just heard he now has to wear an armored jacket as two of his colleges have been stabbed since the Paris attacks. I suspect someone wants to turn opinion against the refugees – who are fleeing the same people! (It seems from the “accidental electrical fire” that engulfed the Calais refugee camp shortly after the Paris attacks they are succeeding. – Do they really think we are so stupid!)
I console myself, perhaps it is a good illustration. The tender hearts still go to help, they still care, but now they are more on guard and protected. My son in law has the additional “armor” of our daily prayers.
