They had leaders from 3 different faiths giving readings in English and French for the Jewish, Christian and Muslim communities. Everyone was respectful of each other and the crowd clapped for each.
Many people then walked along the River to Trocadero where they had set-up two pillars to look like the Twin Towers, and you could see the Eiffel Tower between them. Both the American and French flags were set out on the ground and on the pillars it read, "The French will never forget." Later, they were preparing for a concert with a full orchestra, choir and featured singers. We were able to listen to rehearsal, and they were wonderful. It was more than I anticipated seeing in Paris, and a very nice commemoration.
