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 #parisattacksImages and interview are a courtesy of Le Petit Journal .

The child tells the reporter the attacks were conducted by "bad guys" who were "not very nice." He then expresses fear that his family will be forced to move, although his father reassures him they won't because there are "bad guys everywhere."

With his arm around his son, the father refers to the crowd at the square, and says, "It's OK. They might have guns, but we have flowers."
