Four days of remembrance are coming to a close, but this plaque will serve as a reminder of last year's deadly attacks on the Charlie Hebdo magazine in Paris, as well as a Jewish deli. President Francois Hollande joined Paris Mayor Anne Hidalgo at Place de La Republique... a year to the day when more than a million people marched through Paris to protest the Charlie Hebdo killings. French rock star Johnny Hallyday commemorated that march with his song "A Sunday in January." Seventeen people were killed in the attacks. And this man says they lost their lives for freedom of expression. And in light of November's deadly Islamist attacks, which killed 130 people in Paris, some residents say France is forever changed. (SOUNDBITE) (French) RESIDENT OF EPINAL, FABIENNE PERRY, SAYING: "I am from a generation who did not know war. But I will be part of a generation who has known terrorism and unfortunately, we will live with it for a long time." Security measures have intensified in France ever since to ensure the safety of all Parisians.
