Here in Paris the post-tragedy healing process will inevitably be a long one, but in the mere few days since Friday’s brutal attacks, Paris has already shown its great resilience and strength. Restaurants, schools, and shops have reopened; the city’s citizens are back in the streets and at work. They bravely forge forward, proving once again that they will not be overcome. Despite this morning’s police raid in Saint-Denis, the overall feeling in Paris is one of warmth and solidarity.
At the scenes of Friday’s attacks we see no images of hatred, but rather of love and remembrance. It is in living fully every day and working, as a global community, towards real progress and positive change that we can best honor those whose lives were taken.
The following are some images taken over the course of the last few days in Paris.
