One student's message: "I fully understand that you can't forgive the attack of terrorism.  Let me mourn the sacrificed people from my heart.   But revenge will kill a lot of innocent people.  If you stop here and look for the solution by peaceful means, peace will come for sure. I believe you are the only person who can stop revenge.  And then in the future let us abolish war together".
