Fluctuat nec mergitur is a Latin saying that translates to "Tossed but never sunk," and it's a motto of sorts for many Parisians. Dominique Revert, the club's co-manager who was not present the night of the shootings, conjures it now and says it will be Le Bataclan's raison d'etre moving forward. "It will reopen, no question about it," he says. "Hearts will be heavy for a few months, a few years. But we will reopen. We will not surrender."
