a chance happening
After buying food at the market on Richard Lenoir Blvd we were waking home and came across a floral tribute against a fence in the centre of the boulevard. Looking up ahead we could see a steady stream of people in groups of 2-3 crossing Richard Lenoir Boulevard in the direction of Republique. They were waking for climate change in the march that had been cancelled. These were everyday people, walking silently and reverently. We joined them and soon saw a growing field of floral tributes fading in beauty, as we realised we were passing the Bataclan Theatre. Police stood guard in a non threatening and protective manner as we quietly moved with the tide of climate walkers. The sense of respect for the victims and witnesses was palpable.
