Let us assemble today evening in the Hall of languages to support for those impacted in France.


In the biggest show of solidarity, in Paris, more than a million people mourned the victims of three days of terror. The French press hailed Sunday's rallies, the biggest in the country's history that saw nearly four million people pour into the streets, with some estimates putting the number in Paris alone at 1.6 million. All major newspapers splashed photos of the sea of humanity on the French capital's streets, with banner headlines reading "A people rise up", "Freedom on the march," and "France stands up". President of France Mr Hollande on Sunday led more than a million people on the march in Paris in tribute to the victims of the attacks as the crowd cried, "Not afraid." At the head of the vast and colourful procession in the capital, Hollande linked arms with world leaders including the Israeli prime minister and the Palestinian president, in an historic display of unity. The vast crowd chanted "Charlie, Charlie", in honour of the cartoonists and journalists killed at Charlie Hebdo over its lampooning of the Prophet Mohammed. The crowd brandished banners saying "I'm French and I'm not scared" and, in tribute to the murdered cartoonists, "Make fun, not war" and "Ink should flow, not blood". Emotions ran high in the grieving City of Light, with many people in tears as they came together under the banner of freedom of speech. With so many world leaders present, security in the still jittery capital was tight, with police snipers stationed on rooftops and plain-clothes officers among the crowd.
"Today, Paris is the capital of the world," Hollande said. "The entire country will rise up."
Hundreds of thousands of people turned out in other French cities including Bordeaux and Lyon, and marches were held in Berlin, Brussels, Istanbul and Madrid as well as in US and Canadian cities. British Prime Minister David Cameron, who also marched, predicted Europe would face the threat of extremism "for many years to come", but his Italian counterpart Matteo Renzi pledged the continent "will win the challenge against terrorism".
Earlier Renzi had tweeted using the hashtag #jesuischarlie (I am Charlie), which has been used more than five million times.
Chancellor Kent Syverud of Syracuse university  said “Nearly 27 years ago, terrorism struck the Syracuse University community and changed our world forever. Because of Pan Am Flight 103, this great University long ago experienced the searing pain of terrorism. Each day since then, we have paid respect to those victims and learned how to reassert and fight for our values of good in the face of evil.

Today, our hearts ache for our friends in France and for all the men, women, and children affected by yesterday’s terror attacks. It’s a feeling all too familiar for the Syracuse University community.

Today, we pray for the lives lost. We send our support to the family and friends of those who perished. And, we extend our heartfelt gratitude to the military and police for their quick response and their ongoing efforts to keep the people of France safe.

This evening, to show our support for those impacted, the Hall of Languages will be lit in the colors of the French flag.”

Let us assemble today evening in the Hall of languages to support for those impacted in France.
