January 11, 2015 “Today Paris is the capital of the world.” -President Hollande
In the aftermath of recent terrorist attacks in Paris, citizens of France and world leaders came together and offered support. Here’s an excerpt from the FOX News on-line article about the Rally for Global Unity.
More than 40 world leaders — press reports put the number at 44 — along with more than a million ordinary French citizens, marched arm in arm through the streets of Paris Sunday to rally for unity and freedom of expression and to honor the 17 victims killed in three separate terror attacks last week.
Among the world leaders who did march, under heavy security, were French President Francois Hollande, British Prime Minister David Cameron, German Chancellor Angela Merkel, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas.
