Paris has been hit but it's still standing.

We have received a lot of love from around the world giving us support and strength to go through these very hard moments.

We have faced an historical moment that shook the world, but in recent days events have changed for the better, security has been strengthened and Paris is now as safe as London, New York, Rome or any other city.

City of Light will always be the City of Light.

Love will always be Love.

Freedom will always be Freedom

And Paris, Love and Freedom are one and the same thing.

In 3000 years of history, we've been attacked by romans, vikings, barbarians, huns and nazis, but no-one has ever destroyed Paris.

Latin motto of the city is "Fluctuat Nec Mergitur", "Tossed but not sunk".

Paris was, is and will always be the city on water that never sink.

From Middle Age to Renaissance, from the impressionists to the surrealists, from Van Gogh to Picasso, from Dali to Modigliani, from Henry James to Scott Fitzgerald, the heartbeat of Paris is made of two beats: love and freedom.

Support us, unite with us, and don't be afraid.

Because as Hemingway once said, Paris stays with you for the rest of your life, "for Paris is a moveable feast".

Come to Paris.

Come home.

We need you.
