Stockton Couple Reacts To Paris Attacks


Morris Artiaga and his wife Cindy Clays have traveled to Paris eight times since 2004.

The images of the terrorist attacks take them to places in the city they visited only a month ago.

"My heart goes out to the people in Paris right now," says Clays.

"There's going to exist a certain amount of trauma for awhile, but I think Paris will bounce back, it's a vibrant city as Cindy said and the French people are resilient so things will go back," explains Artiaga. 

Paris is the most visited city in the world with 33 million tourists a year.

The attack may turn some tourists away, but Morris and Cindy say they'll go back.

"Nothing really can take away from what Paris is, I don't think we want to let this tragedy change it for us."
