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.”
