Solidarity for Paris in Washington | Capitol Lens

Washington, D.C., rallied over the weekend to show support for the victims of the Nov. 13 terrorist attacks in Paris. Hundreds gathered in Lafayette Square, across the street from the White House, to wave signs, hold candles and project a shared sense of grief. Roll Call Photo Editor Bill Clark was on hand and captured some powerful images from the scene.
