To my French flist  
In French, you say je suis désolé. It comes from the Latin desolare. We have a word in English from the same root: desolate. I am desolated, and I am sorry. You have my love and I hope that all your loved ones are safe.

I know that you are strong and resilient and will stand in solidarity against radical hatred like this. I wish you never needed to do so. The generosity and beauty of #PorteOuverte humbles and inspires. You are magnificent, Paris. No malignant fools can ever change that.

Thanks for your very kind comment. Everybody here is shocked, but the people I talked with (and me too!) were determined not to let terrorrists dictate our way of life. The support of people from all over the world means a lot.
