A French father, his little son and a reporter had a conversation in the wake of the recent Paris attacks and the conversation is going viral after it was shared on Facebook by French TV show Le Petit Journal.
After the little boy in the interview expressed his fear of the "bad guys" when asked if he understood the attacks, the father used a very simple but heartwarming idea to reassure him, reports Mashable.
A translation of their conversation was posted by the Huffington Post and has been given below:
The video starts with the reporter asking the little boy if he understands why Paris was attacked by terrorists on Friday.
Boy: "Yes, because they're very, very, very mean. The bad guys aren't very nice. And we really have to be careful because we have to change homes."
Father: "No, don't worry, we don't have to change homes. France is our home."
Boy: "But there are bad guys, Daddy!"
Father: "Yes, but there are bad guys everywhere."
Boy: "They have guns, they can shoot at us because they have guns and are bad."
Father: "Well, they have guns, but we have flowers."
Boy: "But flowers don't do anything."
Father: "See all the flowers? They're to fight against the guns."
Boy: "Are they there to protect? The candles too?"
Father: "There you go. It's to not forget those who left us yesterday."
Boy: "The flowers and the candles, they're there to protect us."
Reporter: "So are you feeling better?"
Boy: "Yep, I'm feeling better."
