WATCH: Dad eases young son's worry in Paris

- A father's heartwarming explanation to his son about the Paris terror attacks is electrifying social media, with more than 27 million views on Facebook alone.

The video shows an interview conducted by a reporter for France's Le Petit Journal in a Paris square where people are laying flowers and lighting candles to honor the 129 victims killed in the attacks.

The child tells the reporter the attacks were conducted by "bad guys" who were "not very nice." He then expresses fear that his family will be forced to move, although his father reassures him they won't because there are "bad guys everywhere."

With his arm around his son, the father refers to the crowd at the square, and says, "It's OK. They might have guns, but we have flowers." 

Part of the conversation has been translated below: 

-BOY: "But there are bad guys, Daddy!" 

-FATHER: "Yes, but there are bad guys everywhere."

-BOY: "They have guns, they can shoot at us because they have guns and are bad."

-FATHER: "Well, they have guns, but we have flowers." 

-BOY: "But flowers don’t do anything."

-FATHER: "See all the flowers? They’re to fight against the guns."

-BOY: "Are they there to protect? The candles too?"

-FATHER: "There you go. It’s to not forget those who left us yesterday.”

-BOY: “The flowers and the candles- they’re there to protect us."

The reporter then asks the boy, “So, are you feeling better?”, to which he says "Yep. I’m feeling better."
