Paris Terror Attacks 20 Years Apart

My thoughts and prayers go out to those affected by the terrorist attacks tonight in Paris.

I’m reminded of an event just over 20 years ago when I was an exchange student living in Paris, France. On the morning of October 17, 1995, there was a terrorist attack on the RER C train. I wrote at the time:

“First, the métro today was full of people! I heard on the speaker that the RER C was closed… I made the connection… un nouveau attentat s’est passé. 29 people were injured in the bomb attack that happened at 7:00 this morning. I’m not scared… but it’s getting a little scary in Paris.”
