Visitors to the 9/11 Memorial Museum’s Education Center on Saturday created heartfelt displays of sympathy as a response to the recent tragedy in Paris, France.

Working with materials from the non-profit New York Says Thank You, children and families decorated Stars of HOPE with French colors and imagery, such as the Eiffel Tower.

Hundreds of visitors to the 9/11 Memorial continued to show solidarity with France during a special tribute on the Memorial on Monday, according to the Wall Street Journal. The New Yorker produced a compelling video, talking with several attendees to the tribute event. WNBC talked with visitors, 9/11 Memorial President Joe Daniels and captured the laying of flowers at the Survivor Tree.
