The entire world grew silent following the attack that stuck Paris. From what we know, there has been as much as seven coordinated attacks that left over 130 fatalities and over 350 that has been injured. Blood donation centers all over the Paris has opened and there has been people lining up that stretches as far as the eyes can see in order to give blood to the injured and those in need.
