Around 150 people are suspected dead – with 127 confirmed deaths – while 200 others injured following the shootings in Paris. President Francois Hollande declared a national state of emergency after what he called an unprecedented terrorist attack.

What happened in Paris was shocking and heartbreaking. Far too many innocent lives were taken by a vicious group of cowardly individuals and a beautiful city cherished by people around the world was shaken to its core.

Tonight – November 16th, The Eiffel Tower lit up in the red, white and blue of the French flag in tribute to the victims of the Paris terrorist attacks last Friday.
