How this little boy and his dad helped Paris “finally let go of their tears”

How do you explain the Paris terror attacks to a child? This father found the most beautiful way!
The dad has been praised for how he responded to his young son’s comments – and it’s even allowing some French people to ‘let go of their tears’
Since Friday, France and the rest of the world have been trying to make sense of devastating terror attacks that rocked Paris , leaving 129 people dead.
We have seen footage of people laying flowers at the site of the massacres, or silently weeping during yesterday’s two-minute silence.
But one heartwarming video circulating on social media shows the ‘humanity in the face of inhumanity’ we have come to recognize in response to the devastation – and is even helping French people come to terms with their grief.
In an interview with Le Petit Journal in front of floral tributes left for the dead, a young boy is asked if he understands what has happened.
He responds: “Yes, because they are very, very, very bad. Baddies are not very nice. We need to be really careful because we will have to move home.”
