DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. -- Geraldine Morgan Clinton used a Facebook app to place her profile photo with a flag of France in the background as a show of "support for the people of Paris" in the wake of Friday's terrorist attacks with ISIS claiming responsibility for six coordinated bombings or gunfire that led to bloodshed.
"That was a cold calculated & merciless plan of attack," Clinton, an Oak Hill-area cattle rancher told Headline Surfer®."
As expected, reaction here in greater Daytona Beach overnight Friday when news of the attacks dominated the cable news outlets was one of anger and it continued into the weekend as more details emerged about the terrorists and rheir targets. Undersatandably, people throughout the greater Daytona Beach-Orlando metro area were shocked and outraged.
"If you didn't realize we are in World War 3 already - hope you all know now," Michele Miller of New Smyrna Beach said in response to the terrorist attacks in Paris.

People like Michelle Miller of New Smyrna Beach.
"If you didn't realize we are in World War 3 already - hope you all know now," Miller said in response to the attacks in Paris that left at least 128 people dead, many of them at a concert hall, others at cafes and restaurants in what was at least six coordinated attacks with explosions and automatic gunfire.
Mark E. Lewis of Daytona Beach said he believes the terrorist attacks are the result of perverted religious beliefs by Islamic radicals.
"At the root of so much hate in the world is the simple fact that people believe that they are killing to satisfy the will of God," Lewis said. "The great joke will come when God rejects their entrance to paradise. Prayers for Paris." Stan Lee of Ormond Beach said,"The best way to protect your population against crazy violent people is to arm good sane people."
Clinton, the cattle rancher, said President Obama has made it possible for similar attacks to take place here in America because of his empathy for Islamic people -- regardless of whether most are law-abiding.
Clinton continued: "I feel like Obama has opened the gates to hell by letting Muslims in here and we will be next. 10,000 have already arrived and more are on the way, to be spread out and placed in different states here. No women or children. It's all men. That tells me there's a reason for what he's doing.
