Hello,

John Kerry speaking French for this latest event in Paris. Have a listen.

If you want to continue in French regarding the subject, here's an article where you can learn a new word: deuil. Look it up on Wikipedia for a definition.

The events form a circle around my apartment in the 3e. I walk to take metro Chemin Vert to work every day.
Quelle chance?

This is a better link.

The other video had very few comments.
Here you can see how much this small geste of Kerry (to speak in French) meant to many people here.

Since it's no fun to think about that sort of stuff, here are two videos you can finish up with. I suggest in this order:
