Do any of you subscribe to Birchbox--in any country?

#JeSuisCharlie: My Thoughts on the Attack

This post is long and nothing like my others, but I feel that it's important to discuss my experience in France relative to the terrorist attacks that happened last week. By now, you know about the attack on the Charlie Hebdo office in Paris, the hostage situation by those same killers in the outskirts of Paris, and the hostage situation--and deaths--effectuated by an accomplice at a kosher market in Paris.
