Bastille Day is the common name given in English-speaking countries to the national day of France, which is celebrated on 14 July each year. In French, it is formally called Fête nationale française, and legally le 14 juillet.
The French National Day is the anniversary of the Storming of the Bastille on 14 July 1789, a major event of the French Revolution, as well as the Fête de la Fédération that celebrated the unity of the French people on 14 July 1790. One that has been reported as “the oldest and largest military parade in Europe” is held on 14 July on the Champs-Élysées in Paris in front of the President of the Republic, along with other French officials and foreign guests.

I woke up this morning to see the (numbers appear to be different, but they are in the millions) French people peacefully walking against extremist (but I have to remember NOT to read the news articles on Facebook,lol) I find that it’s been a bit terrifying to read the news articles on Facebook, they are terrifying and I tend to end up getting really involved and getting into arguments.
To see though MILLIONS coming together to say “No” to extremists and terrorist is a wonderful site, even if there are people out there who just don’t get it. I think that a lot of them think that we should take up guns and kill everyone. Some of the more interesting comments that I’ve heard are:
“Christians have never killed anyone in the name of God”
“Why aren’t there any Muslims marching? Because they care more about than idol” I promptly pointed out that it might have something to do with everyone is saying “Kill all Muslims”.
Anyways, I do not want to concentrate on that. I think it shows something when in the last few months we have had some situations around the world where we as a societywe had a choice. We could give into the fear, or we can show those extremists that we wont be scared off or intimidated. I personally think it’s great to see that most people in this world thinks that we should show those people that we’re not going to take it, instead of becoming vigilantism ourselves!
