Our hearts go out to the people of Paris, France, as they deal with the consequences of multiple terrorist attacks on Friday. The death toll stands at 128 right now, and hundreds are injured. There were both shootings and bombings. The lights of the Eiffel tower were turned off in mourning.
The world rallied around France in the aftermath of the attacks. Symbols of support came from all over. The most immediate and photogenic way of showing support was to light landmarks in the colors of the French flag: blue, white, and red.
