Today, in the same location where a terrorist’s van killed 13 pedestrians, thousands of people marched in defiance against terrorism.
Las Ramblas Streets were packed full of people chanting and waving banners and flags.
Makeshift memorials were made in the spots where the dead had previously laid. Many of these spots were formed by family members of the deceased, who had laid down the individuals belongings with flowers and candles. By the end of the march, the memorials had grown with gifts from crowd members paying their respects.
Amongst the gifts were stuffed animals and kids toys to remember the small children that had been killed.
A somber mood could be felt all around, but we must remember that everyone that came out today took a risk during an ongoing terrorist incident.
It was truly a defiant act.
