It's been two years since terrorists killed 130 people in coordinated attacks across Paris, but relatives of concertgoers slain at the Bataclan theater say their mourning is as overwhelming as ever.
“The notion of having grieved, I’m not sure it works when it comes to your son,” said François Giroud as he prepared to mark the second anniversary of his son's death on Monday. "Every day is Nov. 13."
Jolivet, who suffers from post-traumatic stress disorder, agreed that every new terrorist attack reopens old wounds.
“I feel a bit imprisoned by these attacks repeating themselves,” she said. “When people say, 'We mustn’t live in fear,' I wish I could, but I just don’t know how to.”
Two years on from the massacre, Jolivet said she was focusing on her children, Mila, 8, and Tom, 4.
While he may have been a graphic designer by day, the 39-year-old Foultier was a musician by night. He had founded a group, Nite Nite, with his best friend, Rudy Fagnaud.
At the time of his death the pair were nearing completion of their first album. Fagnaud has since completed the record with Jolivet writing the lyrics for a new song composed as a tribute to the young father and the others who died in the attacks.
“The terrorists want us to be silent,” said Jolivet, who said she refused to feel angry because it does not help. “We’re not shutting up. His songs, his voice, his bass is going to play forever even if he’s dead. It’s like my revenge.”
