Tributes at the Embassy of France
On November 16, staffers of the French Embassy in Washington, D.C. and the nine consulates throughout the U.S. observed a minute of silence in memory of those who died in the Paris terror attacks.
Many Americans have also paid tribute to France by leaving flowers, candles and letters in front of the Embassy and by signing the electronic book of condolence on the website.
Several officials also came directly to the Embassy to express their solidarity with the victims and their families.
“On 9/11 the French said we are all Americans. Today, we are all French", wrote House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi. “On behalf of the people of Washington D.C., we stand with you,” wrote Muriel Bowser, the mayor of Washington, D.C.
