Support for Istanbul floods social media after deadly airport terror attack

On Tuesday, news alerts we've grown far too accustomed to filled inboxes and Twitter streams. A series of explosions detonated in a major transportation hub — this time at Ataturk Airport in Turkey's Istanbul. Three gunmen strapped with bombs and guns blazing wreaked havoc on innocent travelers. At least 36 were killed, and nearly 150 wounded, according to CNN.

Almost immediately signs of support started to flood social media platforms, as the global population came to grips with yet another deadly terror attack. Global Citizen joins the calls for support, and action, to help create a more tolerant, peaceful world, where love and tolerance trump hate and senseless violence.
