Out of the mouths of babes.
French TV interviewed this father and young son at the scene of the Bataclan attacks.
Despite his young ago – or perhaps because of it – the boy simply and concisely explains why terrorists do what they do.
A father and son have the most precious conversation during an interview by french media at the scene of the Bataclan attacks. I saw that it hadn't been subtitled in english yet, so I made a quick edit to show the rest of the world how freakin awesome some of our citizens are. They're my heros. I feel better too now! #paris #bataclan #parisattacksUPDATE: Full segment has been posted with subtitles by LPJ http://www.dailymotion.com/video/x3e8rah_paris-attacks-november-2015-le-petit-journal-du-16-11_tvImages and interview are a courtesy of Le Petit Journal .

It is almost that simple.
I assume the father said what he did to comfort his child and not because he actually believes it. Because we all need a heck of a lot more than candles and flowers to protect ourselves from this evil.
