Between 11 and 18 November,  Latvia is marking the so-called Patriotic Week. It opened with the remembrance events of Lāčplēsis Day commemorating  one of the crucial battles in the Latvian War of Independence at the beginning of the 20th century, when Latvian soldiers sacrificed their lives for a noble cause - the foundation of the independent State of Latvia.The patriotic week will be continued through 18 November with celebrations of the proclamation of the Republic of Latvia in 1918. Yet, unexpectedly, Latvia, like the rest of Europe and the whole of the world, was shocked by the tragedy in Paris where, as a result of several terrorist attacks on 13 November, hundreds of innocent people lost their lives.
