November 15, 2015, BOSTON – A vigil took place at noon, on Sunday, on the Boston Common, in response to a night of terror in Paris, that killed more than 120 people and injured nearly 300 others. Adriana Harley, a former resident and student of France, expressed her feelings, stating, “I have friends back in France. Its very hard to actually speak about this incident, because one feels that there are no words to express the atrocity, the horror. Its an unspeakable barbaric act. It’s hard to believe that these things have actually happened, like 9/11, so how did we all get here? We think of ourselves as civilised, and having reached the 21st century, and then we go back into tribal actions, this barbaric behaviour that is unworthy of any human being in any period of history. I think even tribes from 3000 years ago would have hesitated before they would have taken the life of innocent people. For the people who did this, to draw the attention of the western world to their despair… I mean their despair might be true, but killing innocent people is not a way to communicate that to the western world”.

November 15, 2015, BOSTON – Pierre Ruelland from France, currently working in Boston, is photographed while giving his condolence to all the lives lost in Paris, at a vigil that took place at noon, on Sunday, on the Boston Common. “I think it’s too soon, when you see something like this happening again in less than a year. It’s a very fragile situation and you can’t really understand why some people who are probably my age or older, decide to kill other people who have nothing to do with whatever they are fighting for. How lost do you need to be, to see the best way to be solving a problem is to going abroad into a concert hall, to kill people who are just there to hear music. It’s awful, and it’s a tough time from France. I am afraid of what will happen next, but today I just want to mourn”. Photograph by Shraddha Gupta.
