“Following the attacks on France this past Friday, the lights of the Eiffel Tower were turned off to mourn those who had lost their lives in Paris. However, dozens of other countries illuminated their monuments with the French colors in support of France,” she explained. “This shows that French culture and issues are not just confined to France, but are something the entire world cares about.”
After getting a sense of what the Commander in Chief of our country has to say, the real question is what do members of the Bullis Community think?
The Bulldog asked Jacob Scher (‘16). “It’s terrible” he said, “I think that we should respond to it and future attacks should try to be prevented."
"Some of us are already looking to support those affected. I think we should acknowledge it and talk about it, but also maybe try and find a school in Paris and send cards showing our condolences and prayers for those who lost loved ones” said Monique Muse (‘16).
Ms. Ponsky added, “I’m happy that they made a very brief comment in regards to the situation that had occurred in Lebanon and in Baghdad last week in addition to what occurred in Paris. I think there are terrorist attacks occurring throughout the world that we need pay attention to as well.”
Now that the Bullis Community has a better understanding of the conflict that occurred in France, the question becomes, what can the student body as well as the rest of the community do to show their condolences or offer their support?
