#Paris, #ParisAttacks, #ParisShooting are some of the main hashtags that are filling internet, where citizens of the world show their disagreement with such events, and support to Paris.

 

Parisians also created the hashtag #PortesOuvertes, #OpenDoor, #PuertasAbiertas with which they are offering refuge to those who have been victims of the attacks, showing solidarity and demonstrating that despite what happened they are not afraid about this horrible event.

 

The terrorist attacks on Friday certainly will go down in history, but it will also remain etched in the minds of all the solidarity that has been shown, since everyone is shown support through the hashtags #PrayForParis, #TodosSomosParis, #PrayForPeace, #Prayers4Paris, #PeaceForParis, among others.
