Paris in Washington Square Park

dsc_0865People had gathered in several places yesterday in memory of the victims of the terrorist acts in Paris on Friday.
I went to Washington Square Park to see some of the people who had gathered there. It is really heartbreaking what has happened, and not only in Paris but also in other places in the world. Such hatred will never win. That is why I really support such gatherings. They are non-violent and in solidarity with the killed ones. Revenge is never the answer, we have to keep upholding our love and respect for each other and stay stronger by our principles of democracy. We need to let Paris still be Paris full of life, laughter, wine, cheese, culture, people and party.

Folk hadde samlet seg flere steder i går til minne om ofrene for terrorhandlingene i Paris på fredag.
Jeg dro til Washington Square Park for å se noen av de folkene som hadde samlet seg der. Det er virkelig hjerteskjærende hva som har skjedd, og ikke bare i Paris, men også andre steder i verden. Et slikt hat vil aldri vinne. Det er derfor jeg virkelig støtter slike samlinger. De er ikke-voldelig og i solidaritet med de omkomne. Hevn er aldri svaret, må vi i stedet tviholde på kjærlighet og respekt for hverandre og bli sterkere rundt våre prinsipper om demokrati. Vi må la Paris fortsatt være Paris full av liv, latter, vin, ost, kultur, folk og fest.
