Main tourist attractions in Paris were shut down for days including The Eiffel Tower. The country of France even closed its borders as they declared a state of national emergency. As of Monday, The Eiffel Tower has been re illuminated with the country’s colors of red, white and blue. President Obama gave his condolences stating that this wasn’t just an attack on the French people, but that this was an attack on humanity. Social media trends have allowed people from all around the globe to express their love to those affected by this tragedy. Facebook allows users to change their profile picture to display the French flag while Instagram and Twitter users utilize the hashtag, #PrayForParis to convey artistic symbolism to those in Paris. Here at Mountain View High School, we send our prayers and thoughts to the people of Paris.
