UPDATE: According to USA Today, the death toll in Paris from the coordinated terrorist attacks stands at 129, which includes at least one American. Paris officials also noted that 350 people had been injured. Initial reports claimed nearly 160, but, fortunately, it appears that the math was wrong. Nonetheless, please pray for those killed and injured as well as their families.
Today, terrorists attacked at least six different locations in Paris. As of right now, the death toll stands at 158, but is expected to change. Our thoughts and prayers are with those in Paris tonight as some of the perpetrators remain on the loose, according to news reports.
Please keep the victims and their families in your hearts and prayers. Just as Colorado knows the breathless pain of senseless violence, we stand with Paris in rejecting the actions of these terrorists.
