My After: 11/13 Paris by Pamela Davis Kivelson

This project was born out of a conversation about how to represent freedom, courage, and resilience after the Paris terrorist attacks. It is an attempt to celebrate the voices of ordinary individuals who refuse to surrender to terror, anger, and the threat of increased militarization.
