And do not fear those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul. Rather fear him who can destroy both soul and body in hell.

Matthew 10:28

Much will depend on the scale and timing of the next atrocity. Life has a way of returning to normal quite quickly. But if Europe’s security agencies, which have done a pretty good job keeping its citizens safe in the past, are unable to prevent attacks of this kind becoming a more regular occurrence, then keeping calm and carrying on may not be an option.

But there is also a will in France, familiar to New Yorkers, not to be annihilated, not to be turned by terrorism into a citizenry that can no longer recognize itself. New Yorkers learned that you can live your lives or your fears, and that it is always wiser to live your lives.

-Adam Gopnik ‘Terror strikes in Paris‘ The New Yorker
