ISIS-linked terrorists slaughtered 129 people, 100 people alone in a concert hall, on Friday in Paris. Family members and friends took to social media to put faces to those lost in the tragedy.
Antoine Leiris penned a tribute to his beloved wife, whom he lost on Friday. He told the terrorists they “will not have my hatred.”
“Friday night you stole the life of an exceptional being, the love of my life, the mother of my son, but you will not have my hatred,” he wrote. “I do not know who you are and I do not want to know. You are dead souls. If God, for which you kill blindly, made us in his image, then every bullet in my wife’s body will be a wound in His heart.”
American Nohemi Gonzalez, 23, lost her life in the attacks. She traveled to the city to participate in an exchange program at the Strate College of Design. Mourners remembered her on Sunday in Long Beach, where she attended California State University.
“Nohemi was something of a star in our department,” design professor Michael LaForte told KQED. “She was a shining star, and she brought joy, happiness, laughter to everybody she worked with and her students, her classmates. She functioned like a bit of a mentor to younger students.”
