Photos: D.C. Shows Support for Paris After Attacks

This past Friday, the Eiffel Tower in Paris went dark after the horrific attacks done by Isis, and the world responded by illuminating their own buildings and monuments with the colors of France's flag. Washington, D.C. joined in with support for Paris with bouquets of flowers and other gifts placed in front of the gates of the Embassy of France. In Lafayette Square, there was a candlelight vigil for those who lost their lives during the attacks. The colors of the French flag were also illuminated on the ice before the hockey game between the Washington Capitals and Calgary Flames. The National Harbor also showed support by illuminating the Capital Wheel in red, white, and blue.
