The world continues to mourn the horrific attacks in Paris, France over the weekend. Terrorists staged coordinated attacks at six locations, including the famous Le Bataclan concert venue, which left at least 129 people dead and at least 352 wounded. While the country’s President has declared, “France is at war,” celebrities from around the world have come together to show their love and support for the City of Light.

Madonna devoted her song “Like A Prayer” to the victims during a concert in Stockholm. The singer says that she was going to cancel her show but refused, because it represents the freedom we’re fighting for.
“There is power in unity,“ the Material Girl said, becoming emotional and teary. “There is more goodness in this world. We are here to prove it!”

Kim Kardashian also posted #PrayforParis, with the hashtag’s official image (by artist Jean Jullien) of the Eiffel Tower set against a peace sign.
