It’s hard to see any light in the wake of something as devastating as last week’s terrorist attack in Paris, which claimed the lives of over 100 people.
While the world has rallied around our brothers and sisters in France, a short news clip from Le Petit Journal sur Canal+ comes as a sign of hope, as a dad sweetly explains what happened to his young son.
The little boy says he understands what happened and why, because, as he explains, “Bad guys are not very nice.”
He then seems to think that, because of the attack, he and his family will have to move out of their home, which his father reassures him they won’t. “France is our home,” he says.
Still, the little boy seems -- understandably -- concerned. But his father is there to assure him and help him find that light.
“It’s OK, they might have guns, but we have flowers,” the father says.
“The flowers and the candles are here to protect us,” the little boys reiterates, then, when asked by the reporter if he feels better knowing that, adds, “Yes, I feel better.”
