Observing the anniversary of the 13 November attacks in Paris.
Our Experience in Paris
"The presence of our friends from One World Strong for the second anniversary of the terrorist attacks of November 15, 2015 in Paris was a very special treat. They attended, side by side with the survivors, the different events that were organized to remember our love ones and to comfort those of us who have to live with our wounds and our losses. It was very moving to receive this testimony of solidarity from such nice people who came all the way from the other side of the Atlantic to be with us on this day which is always a difficult time for us. We are feeling so close because of the similarity of our experiences."
