The interview starts with the boy being asked if he understands what happened.

The interview was translated into English by YouTube user Jeje125.

Then the little boy's father corrects him, explaining that they don't have to move because of the attacks.

The little boy's father explains that while the attackers had guns, the people of France have flowers and candles.

The little boy thinks about it for a minute and then the reporter asks him if he feels better.
