Support Pours Out for Victims of Deadly Nice, France, Attacks

Thursday night, as France settled into darkness and Bastille Day revelers finished watching fireworks in celebration of their country’s national holiday, at least one man drove a truck into a crowded promenade, plowing people down and then letting loose a torrent of bullets, killing at least 80 people in his wake.

The reports are still developing, but one thing is evident: people around the world — let’s call them global citizens — are showing their support and sorrow on social media.
