Baton Rouge residents remember victims in Paris attacks
BATON ROUGE - Dozens of people decided to spend their Sunday afternoon downtown honoring deceased victims of the Paris, France attacks.
More than one hundred people were killed Friday evening at various places throughout the city, during a terrorist attack.
People in Baton Rouge did their part to remember the victims.
"We're all Paris right now. This could have easily happened in the U.S.," said Ashley Herrick, an organizer for the event.
The group gathered at the Town Square and wore berets, held up French flags, and sang songs to remember the victims.
Sarah Assouline, who just arrived in Louisiana from France, three months ago, said she's grateful that the many in the world are coming together to support her country.
"I hope that some of those horrible people could see that we're all one. We're not mostly French. We're citizens of the world," said Assouline.
The death toll in Paris has risen to 132 people.
