Dear Pacific community,
Our hearts are heavy upon hearing the news of the heinous attacks in Paris. Our thoughts are with the victims, their families, emergency services and the people of Paris and all of France. We stand in solidarity with them. This is an attack against everything that makes us human. France is America’s oldest ally and friend, and during this time we think back to France’s support during 9/11. Our thoughts and prayers are with the Parisians and their loved ones.
These are days of intense thinking about suffering and violence around the globe.
Love and peace, always.
Cosana Eram, professor of French Studies
