The Living and the Dead

Parisians are still trying to come to terms with the events of 13th November 2015. The Living still come, many days later, to the sites of the killing or to the Place Du Republique, symbol of Parisian defiance and strength.
They gaze with a haunted, searching expression at the tributes, photographs, bullet holes and flowers , looking for some kind of explanation or understanding of it all. And the forever youthful faces of the Dead smile back at them from amongst the candles and flowers offering no explanation but a terrible sense grief.
