PEACE IN PARIS

We thank our international partners for their thoughts and prayers for our team following the events of November 13th. We have been profoundly moved by your kind words.

We recognize the enormous efforts of both domestic and international security operations following this terrible tragedy, which have helped the French capital and all of Europe to feel safer and more secure. Over 150 global leaders are present at the COP21 summit here in Paris until December 11th – Paris is and will remain diligently watchful and protective of its visitors and citizens alike.

We will not give in to the fear and terror caused by the execrable few, but will fight back the way we know best – we will continue to dance, sing, drink fine wines and live life to the fullest! Our resolve to share our joie de vivre with the world is stronger than ever before, and we thank you for standing with us as peace and joy return to our proud nation.
