Fresh off the heels of a devastating terror attack on their own soil, the French joined their fellow Europeans in grieving for their Belgian neighbors. President Hollande strongly condemned the attacks, pledging to continue to help in the fight against ISIS however they can. France has agree to close its border with Belgium in an effort to ensure that none of the terror suspects flee into France. President Hollande has called for an emergency meeting to discuss how both domestic and international terrorism can be stopped.
Despite the dark days past and present that terrorism has provoked, it is beautiful to see these two countries come together. It is especially wonderful to see France providing support that they are surely aware that only they can provide, having been the other major victim of a terror attack in the past few months.
