Europe defiant in the face of terror

Despite the terrorist threat people in Paris and other European cities are getting on with their lives as best they can, writes the centre-left daily The Independent approvingly: "The overriding mood, in Paris and across the world, is one of determined optimism, a resistance to division and fear. It is heartening to see so many stand against giving the terrorists what they want. Being reminded of the universal defiance, resolve and courage that the majority of humankind has in its weaponry is a silver lining in a time of enormous grief. And watching Europe bounce back from the threat of all-consuming hatred is enough to make you smile - however briefly."
