As of Saturday morning (November 14th), 128 people had been killed in the Paris attacks, CNN reports. The Islamic State group has claimed responsibility for the attacks on a stadium, concert hall and Paris cafe diners. The claim was made in a statement in Arabic and French released online Saturday and circulated by supporters of the group. It was not immediately possible to confirm the authenticity of the statement, but it bore the group’s logo and resembled previous statements issued by the group. According to CNN, more than 180 people have been injured. Celebrities have taken to social media, posting prayers for Paris.

I sat into the late hours watching the horrors in Paris. I thought of the new friends I made while in Paris last month. I pray and I pray.
