PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — “I don’t think anybody here has processed any of it yet. We’re still very much into the shock.”

That’s what Katy Le Bris, the school director for Alliance Francaise de Portland, said the day after coordinated terrorist attacks killed at least 129 and wounded scores more.

Le Bris still has friends and family in France and said she was relieved to find out everyone was safe.

Oana Talpalaru, who teaches at the school, said she has friends in Paris. When she heard about the attacks it was “a general state of hysteria a little bit.”

Her friends were also OK.

Le Bris summed up the thoughts of many around the world.

“I’m not sure there is sense to be made out of any of it.”
