Little Boy Has Precious Conversation With His Dad About Paris Attacks

The child discusses how “bad guys” with guns are trying to make him leave his home. His dad then explains him how love can conquer hate.

As Paris reels from a series of shooting rampages and suicide bomb attacks that killed at least 129 people and injured hundreds, a child tries to understand the events unfolding around him.

In the video above, when a reporter with French news broadcast Le Petit Journal asks a little Parisian boy if he understands why terrorists attacked his city, he replies:

“Yes, because they’re very, very, very mean," he replies. "The bad guys aren’t very nice. And we really have to be careful because we have to change homes.”

His father, who was present right next to him, then tells his kid how that would never happen.

“No, don’t worry, we don’t have to change homes. France is our home.”

Soon, the interview develops into a poignant exchange between the two.

As the boy insists bad guys with guns can hurt him, his dad tries to convince him that love can conquer hate.

"See all the flowers?" the man asks. "They’re to fight against the guns."

"Are they there to protect?" replies the boy. "The candles too?"
