Refusing Syrian refugees sanctuary in America appears to be a lose-lose situation for both the American and Syrian people. It isn't out of the realm of possibility to imagine a scenario where a refugee uses the devastation of being turned away to exact revenge against the U.S. by joining ISIS.

Compassion allows us to express unlimited empathy for the victims and their loved ones and also permits us to free their spirits from being executed again by hatred and cruelty. We need to ask ourselves what series of events over the course of time led to this terrible situation.

I'm not alone in my despair over what's happening in the world. The attacks in Paris last week have everyone riveted to their televisions and devices, and for as many questions as we have about the "whys" and "hows" of this tragedy and others like it, there are just as many differences in opinion about what to do with the "who."

I'm feeling particularly haunted by Chris Hondros tonight. Chris was an incredible photojournalist and I got to know him a bit when I was in Iraq.

No one has the right to make any of us feel afraid because of the incitement of hate and acts of terror. The overwhelming majority of people only want to live in peace. We do not want our children and grandchildren to live in fear.

Terrorism only ruins our optimism and hope if we do not look for the ways to respond to it in a meaningful way.

What is refreshingly different about the French compared to the Americans is their lack of the need to turn every occasion into a homecoming parade. They are so not Ra Ra! Part of it has to do with the sensible TV coverage. Part of it has to do with the fact that they are perhaps, for the most part, better educated.
