Hello all. I have only just woken up, to the heartbreaking news that around 118 people have died in French terror attacks. Now I do not have much time, and for now I will not discuss how this occurred, or why. I want to express my 110 % percent solidarity with the French people and the French nation. France witnessed the modern birth of democracy in 1788, and much of our way of life originated from this revolution. Us Aussies fought and died along side the French in World War 1 and World War 2, paying in blood with the hope France could have a safe and prosperous future. When attacks like these occur, with such a savage intent toward innocent civilians, unfortunately this goal has not been fully realized.
I grieve with France, our ally, the birth of democracy, and express my complete and utter support for the French nation.
