This is an interview conducted by the Le Petit Journal after the Paris attacks in November 2015. In this video, a little kid is asked about the Paris attacks and he shows his fear. Then his dad starts to calm his son down by saying the flowers and candles are to protect them and to remember the people who passed away.
I really wish to preserve this video because I was moved by the conversation between the dad and his son and I have so many thoughts after watching this video. It makes me sad when the kid says “they have guns, they can shoot us” because we all know kids are innocent and they speak their mind. And I am just like this little kid, I am also fear of attacks and violence and wish these kind of things never happen. I think his dad did an amazing job not only calming his son, but he also tried to protect and educate his son. Even though his kid knew that the flowers and candles can’t stop bullets, I think what he’s trying tell him is that they should not use violence to stop violence, and they shouldn’t be afraid of it, people need to stay together and should not back down.
