Nice Attacks: My Take (in 150 words)

I know it’s a bit late to talk about this but let me share you my thoughts.
And before we start, condolences with the families who died in the attack, and solidarity with the French.

It seems to be while everybody was celebrating Bastille Day (the celebration of the Storming of the Bastille, with fireworks displays), a man driving a truck deliberately drove through the Promenade des Anglais, killing 84 people and injuring over 300.

The perpetrator, Mohamed Lahouaeij Bouhlel, a Tunisian, was killed by police in a shootout, and was clueless as to who was responsible.

Until now, when the Islamic State claimed responsibility. This has been the third in a row, after the Charlie Hebdo attacks in January 2015, and the Bataclan shootings in November 2015.

I don’t know what to say, but it sure is raising a lot of concerns.

Just be vigilant, stay safe, and never be overcome by hate.
