Peace for Paris

According to CNN, on the evening of November 13, 2015, three teams of terrorists attacked six different locations throughout Paris: Stade de France at 9:20, 9:30, and 9:53, Le Petit Cambodge at 9:25, Rue de la Fontaine au Roi at 9:32, La Belle Equipe at 9:36, and Boulevard Voltaire and Bataclan at 9:40. At least 129 people were killed in these invasions, 352 were wounded, and 99 seriously injured.

Many families lost their loved ones, and the world is mourning the loss of all of these lives lost in the massacre. People in Paris are leaving messages for the victims, like one 9 year old boy who wrote the message “Love always wins” at the Place de la Republique. Other people are honoring the deaths with tattoos, flags, pictures, and more. One image that an artist named Jean Jullien drew went viral after he posted it on several social medias with the caption “Peace for Paris” on Friday. By Monday morning, the picture had received 160,000 likes on Instagram, and even more on Facebook. The hashtag #prayforparis is trending on Twitter and other social medias. Several countries and thousands of people worldwide are acknowledging the tragedies in their own way.
