Viral Poem Urging Prayers For World, Not Just Paris, Strikes A Chord

It urges us to pray "for a world that is falling apart in all corners."

Karuna Ezara Parikh, a blogger from New Delhi, put her thoughts on the Paris attacks into verse, and it became the poem heard around the globe.

"It is not Paris we should pray for. It is the world," her poem, which she posted on Instagram Saturday, begins. She urges us to keep Paris in our hearts but to think about other terror-besieged places, like Beirut and Baghdad, as well.
