The attacks on Paris that have left at least 130 dead have stunned the world and left people grasping for some meaning in the wanton death.
As a result, several state governors in the U.S. have announced that they would try to block Syrian refugees from being resettled in their states.
The attacks are sure to be a huge conversation point over the next few weeks, including over Thanksgiving dinner, where you're surely going to hear some things that you might find yourself questioning.
With that in mind, here's some information — the best we have so far — that should prepare you for whatever comes your way:
1. "Why are all these people fleeing anyway? Can't they just stay wherever they're coming from?"
2. "Well can't they just stay in their region? Or Europe? That'd be better for everyone involved."
3. "Why isn't anyone doing anything about ISIS? Can't we just go over there and take them out?"
4. "We should be taking the fight to ISIS though, why won't the United States lead?"
5. "All the refugees that we're talking about are from Syria and probably terrorists, so shouldn't they be banned?"
6. "But weren't the Paris attacks carried out by terrorists who snuck in as refugees?"
7. "The U.S. should definitely stop taking in refugees, though, until they can be properly vetted, right?"
8. "Shouldn't we focus on getting Christian refugees into the country? They're the ones most in danger."
9. "Why should we keep taking in refugees when most of them getting into the U.S. are fighting-age males without families?"
10. "Won't ISIS attack the U.S. next now that they've carried out this attack in Paris?"
11. "I don't want refugees flooding my state, though, can't my governor stop them from coming in?"
12. "But what about the 200,000 Syrians that Donald Trump has said the U.S. wants to bring in?"
Bottom line, this is a complicated situation, but there's no reason to not pass along facts along with the turkey this week.
