Paris Longhorns Honor Victims of Terror Attacks

Candle lighting at Carillon-UTexas

Following the terrorist attacks in Paris last month, members of the Texas Exes France Chapter paid their respects by visiting impromptu memorials outside the Le Carillon and Le Petit Cambodge restaurants. Chapter members also delivered a letter to the Paris police commissioner, thanking officers for coming to the aid of those in need. “Your courage and bravery are exemplary and you are the pride of France … We know we will grow stronger and get through this test, an example for the entire world,” the letter said.
