Last Friday, November 13th, Paris was struck with terrible tragedy. Parisians lived through 6 to 7 violent attacks, including bombings that claimed over 100 lives. Just a day before that, as many as 50 people were killed in bombings in Beirut, Lebanon. To commemorate those people and their families, the NW French National Honor Society is hosting a gathering tomorrow in the mall at 7:00 am. Join us for a moment of silence. Let’s show that NW stands with the rest of the world in these tragic times.
