The world, both online and off, is reacting to the recent terrorist attacks in Brussels, Belgium. The attacks took place at the Zaventem Airport and at the train station Tuesday morning, killing at least 34 and injuring over 200.
While we, the masses, try to make sense of the madness, some celebrities are using their social platforms to spread truly moving messages of hope, condolences and wisdom.
From George Takei to Khloe Kardashian, here are some of the most powerful celebrity statements being made about the attacks on social media.
Khloe Kardashian quoted the Dali Lama in her #prayforbrussels Instagram post.
#PrayForUsAll Terrorism is one of the scariest things. It does not function like anything else in this world. The Dalai Lama once said “love and compassion are necessities, not luxuries. Without them, humanity cannot survive.” The world falls to its knees yet again over terrorism 💔 #PrayForBrussels #PrayForPeace #PrayForUsAll
