Following a series of deadly attacks on Paris Friday evening, killing over 120 people, thousands rallied to Twitter showing support.
#PorteOuverte began trending shortly after residents were urged to stay indoors, sending a message to those stranded in the streets that they were invited to homes nearby.
Many landmark buildings around the world were lit up red, white, and blue in solidarity with Paris, Toronto’s CN tower among them:
