Do not forget that behind this 14 July, where victory of the new era over the ancienrégime was bought by fighting, do not forget that after the day of 14 July 1789, there was the day of 14 July 1790 – Henri Martin, Chairman of the French Senate – June 1880

The horrific attack on Nice on Bastille Day, July 14, 2016 has already led to the deaths of 84, with many others in critical condition. The significance of this national holiday should be used as a pillar of strength, for what the French citizens were celebrating was the struggle required to overthrow the status quo. In this case, the objective is different, but it is imperative for the international community to stand strong and reject terrorism in all its forms, no matter how hard they try to instil fear in us. The whole world stands with Nice in this time of their grief.
