John Kerry, U.S. Secretary of State, evoked the memory of Nohemí González, one of the victims of Mexican ancestry of the terrorists attacks in Paris that left 129 dead.

In front of the U.S. Embassy in Paris, Kerry said: “Ultimately, we will defeat Daesh and all who share their despicable ideology, and we are on the course to do so. We will continue also to show compassion to those who seek refuge from the violence that the terrorists engender. We will fight to ensure that the world that our children inherit is richer in love and shorter on hate. We will work to bring, like Nohemí González, a beautiful, shining light to areas, the places that are couched in darkness.”

According to local media reports, González, 23, was a senior design major at California State University-Long Beach and was spending a semester studying at Strate College of Design in Sèvres, France. She was killed at one of the restaurants struck by the Islamic State Friday night.

“As one of her former classmates put it, (with) Nohemi’s death the world lost such a beautiful shining light. Now, I understand the sadness of those who knew Nohemí and other victims. The world is diminished by their deaths, and no words of comfort or sorrow or even resolve can change that. We don’t have the power to bring them back. So we must do instead what is within our power. And that begins with a sense of fierce solidarity among good and decent people everywhere, with the vow that we will never be intimidated by terrorists, and with the promise that we will never allow these murderers to achieve their vile aims,” Kerry added.
