He pulled his piano with a bike up to rue Richard Lenoir ten metres from the Bataclan. The man quietly sat at the portable piano and played. I imagine everyone around him or whoever has caught this moment - those with a religion or without, were as one singing the lyrics in their heads.
Imagine there's no countries
It isn't hard to do
Nothing to kill or die for
And no religion too
Imagine all the people
Living life in peace...
You may say I'm a dreamer
But I'm not the only one
I hope someday you'll join us
And the world will be as one
'Liberte, Egalite, Fraternite' is basis of this passionate democracy. These are also some of values that form the basis of a common morality that should be shared by all humanity. The mayor of Paris, Anne Hidalgo;
‘What happened goes beyond anything we could have imagined, such is the horror. The targets are places we love, in this popular and open city of Paris which is happy to share the world’s culture because Paris is a city strengthened by its diversity.
It is this Paris which has been targeted because this model of togetherness is unbearable for fanatics, for those who want to reduce all humanity to silence.
The message that we want to give them, alongside other politicians, is that we will be stronger than those who would to reduce us to silence. We love to debate, we love to disagree, that’s democracy.’
