France Uses This Beautiful Cartoon To Show Solidarity With Belgium
On Tuesday, March 22, terror attacks rocked Brussels, Belgium, one of Europe's most beautiful capitals and the hub of the European Union. There were explosions at the airport and a central train station.
BBC News and ABC are now reporting 31 are confirmed dead.
This is all too reminiscent of the Paris terror attacks in November 2015. France and Belgium are neighbors. Naturally, they feel for one another during these trying times.
French President François Hollande immediately expressed solidarity with the people of Belgium.
But one of the most touching responses and tributes came from the French newspaper Le Monde, which published an illustration from the cartoonist Plantu that captures what both Paris and Brussels are going through right now in a painful yet beautiful way.
The image lets Brussels know the people of Paris understand their suffering and will stand with them moving forward.
Many people tweeted the image along with #JeSuisBruxelles (I am Brussels). It's already becoming an iconic homage to Tuesday's horrific events.
