Watch the very moving speech of Lola’s mother in Paris during the tribute to the 12-year-old girl: “Lola was only asking to be loved. Rebuilding herself will be difficult” – VIDEO
Lola’s family, loved ones and college mates gathered this afternoon in Paris for a “dignified” tribute to the neighborhood where the 12-year-old girl lived and where she was killed in tragic circumstances mid- october. A month after the murder of this child, everyone walked for several hundred meters in the 19th arrondissement, stopping in front of 119 rue Manin, the residence where Lola lived with her family and where she was murdered after being back to school.
The procession continued on its way to the 19th century town hall, in front of which Lola’s parents said a few words.
“Living with and without Lola, understanding the incomprehensible, this is the situation we are in after the psychological tsunami that hit us on October 14,” said the mother. And to add: “Rebuilding will be difficult”
At 119 rue Manin, there are no more flowers or stuffed animals. Only a small pink mosaic representing Lola’s face and affixed to a high wall forever honors the memory of the young girl, buried on October 24 in Lilles (Pas-de-Calais). The procession gathered at this place with music. Then, the tribute, which the parents do not wish to call “white march”, continued to the town hall.
