READ: Powerful Message to ISIS from Paris Victim's Husband Goes Viral
A French man who lost his wife in Friday's terror attacks took to Facebook with a powerful message to the ISIS terrorists.
In a post (read translation above) that has been shared more than 200,000 times and spread across the world in the past few days, Antoine Leiris declared to the terrorists that "you will not have my hate."
"Friday night, you took an exceptional life--the love of my life, the mother of my son--but you will not have my hatred. I don't know who you are and I don't want to know, you are dead souls," Leiris wrote.
Helen Muyal-Leiris, 35, was fatally shot while attending the Eagles of Death Metal concert at the Bataclan theater.
Leiris went on to write that he was grief-stricken, calling that a "small, short-lived victory" for the terrorists.
He declared that one day he will be with his wife again in a "paradise of souls" that the terrorists will "never have access to."
Commenters on Facebook lauded Leiris for his inspiring words in the face of such a devastating loss.
