When the Paris attacks happened yesterday, I felt powerless and sad. Not knowing what else to do, I figured maybe talking about things out loud, remembering this shouldn't be political and we shouldn't rush to judgement would be helpful to me and maybe to other people as well. The C&L community is awesome and I figured maybe people would like a place to talk about what happened and how to come together. Hope you like the discussion Tehran and I have.

*Since filming this, the number of those reported killed has thankfully dropped.

Je suis Paris.
