Outside the Bataclan nightclub, where Paris, France, had been hit the hardest during Friday's terrorist attacks, children have participated in the nation's healing. Norbert Moudjeb, father to Enzo and Diya, went to Bataclan to pay their respects to the victims. "It's very important that this stays in their memories. It's important because they were watching everything on television. Coming to this spot is for the memory of it. I want them to remember this," he explains when asked why he and his children came. Asked what the kids and how he explained it to them, he said, “We told the kids that this is a very sad weekend. It’s a sad Friday night. People were out and about to have dinner, to eat, to get a drink. They lost their lives for nothing. We have to make sure to remember these people.” (mashable.com)ADVERTISEMENT - CONTINUE READING BELOW
