Uplifting Images of France That Prove Paris Will Overcome

On Friday, November 13 there were multiple attacks in Paris—including at a restaurant, a soccer stadium, and at the Bataclan a concert venue where the American band Eagles of Death Metal was playing. At least 118 are reported dead at the concert hall, according to CNN. Officials still do not know who is responsible.
