"The tales of survivors from Friday's devastating terrorist attacks in Paris are going viral, as are messages from grieving friends and family.
129 people were killed and hundreds more injured in a series of coordinated gun attacks and bomb blasts across the City.
The Facebook post of a young woman called Isobel Bowdery detailing how she survived one of the shootings has been shared thousands of times and liked by over a million people.
The latest account is that of young Parisian Antoine Leiris on Facebook.
In his post, entitled “Vous n’aurez pas ma haine”, which translates as "You will not have my hatred," he writes that he will never give the terrorists the "satisfaction" of anger and hate, despite losing his wife in the shooting at the Bataclan theatre. Leris and his wife have an infant son together.
Leiris does not name his wife, but BuzzFeed reports that Hélène Muyal-Leiris, a Parisian makeup artist, was one of the victims of the massacre at the Bataclan.
The post is in French but here are excerpts, translated into English:"
"On Friday evening you stole the life of an exceptional person, the love of my life, the mother of my son, but you will not have my hatred.
So no, I will not give you the satisfaction of hating you. You want it, but to respond to hatred with anger would be to give in to the same ignorance that made you what you are.
Us two, my son and I, we will be stronger than every army in the world. I cannot waste any more time on you as I must go back to [my son] who has just woken from his sleep.
He is only just 17 months old, he is going to eat his snack just like every other day, then we are going to play like every other day and all his life this little boy will be happy and free.
Because you will never have his hatred either."
Look at that face again.
LOOK AT ANTOINE LEIRIS' FACE.
His wife just got murdered.
L-O-O-K at his face.
Is this what Europe has gotten down to? "Antoine Leiris posted a defiant message on Facebook after the loss of his wife in the Paris attacks."
Defiant huh? I can see and smell them ISIS types shitting their djellabas full already.
If there are any wankers out there who feel like complaining that I'm a heartless monster for not caring about Mr Leiris's dead wife and not showing compassion, I'm sorry, but you got it backwards. It's that fuckface who does not care for his wife. It's that loser who's not showing compassion. Gee, "my son and I, we will be stronger than any army in the world"??? Dude, you've got mushy croissants for brains. If that is so, then half that army was there on Friday night, yet it could not retaliate against the assassins who butchered Mme Leiris. "All his life this little boy will be happy and free"? For God's sake, I, I, I, I'm at a complete loss for words by being confronted with sheer uebergullible STUPIDITY and irritating self-righteousness of this magnitude. Your little boy, you amoeba, will only be happy and free but for the efforts of better men than yourself. For crying out loud, I thought that ludicrous dork cycling his Piano to the Bataclan Theatre to play "Imagine" was bad, but this "guy" beats the living shit out of that fool.
Looking at his face, I wonder how he ever got the cojones to approach a woman in the first place? And how did this turd ever get his dick stiff enough to make a baby?
Is my language harsh? It is. But I don't care. I DON'T CARE. I'm FURIOUS. If France has to wage war against ISIS with males like Antoine Leiris, they might just as well surrender right now. If, in this time and age, Antoine Leiris represents European manhood....
... then we're LOST. GAME OVER. I never thought I'd one day wish Europe had still something like the Wehrmacht, but Antoine Leiris just made me do it.
