After a deadly terrorist attack in Nice, France killed over 80 people, Christian leaders took to social media to respond to the tragedy.
The attack occurred last evening in the seaside city of Nice, where a crowd was gathered to celebrate Bastille Day. During the festivities, a terrorist drove a truck at high speed into the crowd.
Christian financial counselor and radio host Dave Ramsay tweeted:
Praying for Nice. So heartbreaking. Time to admit Evil is real; the first step to confronting it.— Dave Ramsey (@DaveRamsey) July 15, 2016
I have no words anymore. The world is an animal howl of grief for too many. We are scrounging for hope and love.— Sarah Bessey (@sarahbessey) July 15, 2016
Franklin Graham asked people to join him in prayer: "French president, François Hollande said, 'All of France is under the threat of Islamic terrorism.' And he’s right–'we need to do everything we can to fight against' such attacks. Will you join me in praying for the grieving families as well as for the more than 50 people injured?"
Later, on Twitter, Graham wrote:
Pray for France as the country grieves the loss of 84 people and many more wounded in the terror attack in #Nice.— Franklin Graham (@Franklin_Graham) July 15, 2016
