Boston residents are showing solidarity with Paris in the aftermath of a day of carnage across the French capital Friday night, when attacks at multiple locations left more than 120 people dead.
People around the world have reacted to show support for Paris, and Boston is no exception. Locals have left flowers at the consulate, hung up French flags, turned their lights to the colors of Tricolour, and offered French travelers places to stay if they are stranded in Boston—the country closed its borders Friday night after the attacks. Even Boston Marathon bombing victims are expressing solidarity with the victims of the attacks.
