    And Kirsten - we know she is safe, but it is scary for both of them.

    I'm glad to hear Barbara is safe. What happened is horrible!

    More than a million migrants came to Germany last year, the majority of them Muslims. Since last September the country has seen four Islamic terror attacks committed on its soil. In the last two decades, terrorist attacks were almost unknown in Germany. This will surely lead to more division and power to the right wing parties, not only in Germany, but all over Europe - and the terror attacks will escalate. No one is safe anymore.

    Randi...It was been determined the 18 yr old native born German had no links to ISIS or any other terrorist group. He was a very trouble kid, with diagnosed psychiatric illness, had been treated (medication) for depression. As he shot he shouted "I am German!" along with slurs directed at foreigners, including Turks. If anything, he was inspired by the nationalism fever sweeping Europe.

    And it's great to hear Barbara and family are OK!!!

    Yes Sandra, I know he wasn't linked to an Islamic group, but none the less, all these shootings and this nationalism fever sweeping Europe will fuel the right wing parties, which is sad. It seems he was inspired from what happened in Norway five years ago. He was half German half Iranian by the way.

    I had no idea about this thread. I was already home when it all happened. It is a terrible thing- nearly all victims were between 14 and 20 years.
    Thankyou for thinking of me.

    I am glad to hear from you, Barbara, and that you are all right.

    It is horrible when there are any victims at all, but especially sad when they are so young.

    Aaahh, I have been defrosted! Thank you, Bonny and Asiel!
    Brrrr, I've been Frosted! Thank you, Asiel and Pomtzu!

    What did Kirsten have to say, Elyse? I don't do Facebook.
