but what about in the future? we must ask this question. will remain in a society where some people would like to reduce history to 120 characters. commemorated the victims of the first world war we must remember that it's a culture, it's our motive living the they were attacking and we must never forget that. we must never forget that some of these never occur again.
we are here to remember together life would like to think for paris in particular so that the members of the two associations of victims of the november 13 events are able to be here side-by-side. we are all victims on it of footing. the parents, the spouses, the children and the survivors. took on our functions in 2017 and that was our purprpose. our associations are not identical. we have our owown pathway but we share the same goal. helping our members who have all suffered the same trauma. occasionally we may have differing opinions on some topics. but we are fighting this fight together.
we do not want the victims to be instrumentalist. the victims of the novembeber 13 attackck we don't want the image to be exploited for political purposes. lead totong g that could hatred and passion. this is what we are fighting against. it's up to show andnd prove and exexplain the people we are talking with. the ministerial authorities. if compensation bebe paid to victims that there be payment for damages. pain-and-suffering on the part of family members. today is not the day to remind
you of our demands. today we are here to remember. listenmber but also to to the musicals were tribute. this represents a life choice of those who were attacked. this music which expresses the well to live and future hope. we decided that each of our associations would choose a piece of m music. we could have chosen eric clapp songome -- eric clapton because i'm particularly fond of eric clapton. but also because he actually int their son -- a son different circumstances. he fell from a tall building during the 9/11 attacks in new york. there's a piece in his recent ifum called is in heaven --
in heaven and he says, i must be strong and carry on. that those words will be my conclusion. those lyrics are what we are all going through three at three years later we are still here. we havave suffered go we are stl standing and we will continue along the pathway of resilience. there was a before and nothing will ever be like it was before but there is an after and therefore we must all be strong. and continue moving forward. thank you. [applause] >> thank you. philip.
see the stone set in your eyes see the thorn twist in your side i'll wait for you sleight of hand and twist of fate on a bed of nails she makes me wait and i wait without you with or without you with or without you through the storm, we reach the shore you give it all but i want more and i'm waiting for you with or without you with or without you, ah-ah i can't live with or without you
that; the 130 people who were killed during the terror attacks -- that ceremony for the 130 people who were killed during the terror attacks. we were listening to a man singing the song "with or without you." the vicethe words of president. the vice president is going to join us. tell us about this commemoration. what can you expect? >> i'm having a lot of trouble hearing you. of course the musical performance is still ongoing. -- the 1311 accords for the date of those attacks. he lost his son at the concert hall three years ago.
today. we will be present each and time -- each and every time we are asked to be. [applause] >> thank you. ladies and gentlemen, deputies, senators, mayors. let them interministerial dedelete. madam interministerial delegate. thank you for being here for this tribute.. the fact that you are being here
reassusures us this has alwaways been thehe purpose of life for paris. bring everyone together. parents, children, spouses, friends. 2018 was a difficult year. the events buter already three years it's extremely difficult to rebuild our lives. just as resilience is very difffficult. attacks areist havinglowly but surely an impact and killing additional victims. we would like to continue fighting against division. philippe do perrone said this briefly and i would like to thank him for his words. i would like to thank the 1113 association for being with us.
we would like to thank the paris mayor. and indeed it's very positive that we are together here for this tribute. we would like to thank the paris we want to be optimistic and yet we know we cannot be angelic. thatve to be very careful the community of victims is not recuperated. beenkunz in particular has involved in a campaign of self-promotion. monument farld d a from the place of the events and claimed that it was financed by anonymous sponsors. we want to be worth more than this mercantilism. the attacks that took place november 13 against the stadium, against bars and restaurants in a concert hall deserve an official memorial.
life for paris has taken on the commitment repeated by the president of the repubublic ande would like to thank -- on behalf of the memorial committee. thank you for the e efforts already deplployed and also for the work yet to be done. we all need carriage. we need to be brave becacause 's going to be a long judiciary battle in the coming years. waiting and hoping for justice. not for vengeance but in order to restore the truth of what occurred. to define who was responsible. what the purposes of that terrorist attack was. unfortunately the initial trials that we've had for the accomplices in particular have somewhat disappointed us and some lawyers have actually
insulted some real victims by defending fake victims. it's dishonoring an entire profession to do such things. by way of conclusion i would like to quote -- in the little prince. it is so mysterious, the country of tears. life for paris would like to emphasize that fraternity helps us dry our tears. thank you very much for being with us here today. >> thank you, arthur. hear "stand by me" and "feeling good" by katie.

reporter: we all know italy is a special place--the beautiful streets, the history, the romance. they really do know how to live the good life here. lately, the country's been doing it tough, especially young people. youth unemployment here sits at a whopping 35%. but ever so slowly, something is changing.
