Je suis là
Often used to express exasperation, "C'est n'importe quoi! N'importe quoi by itself can also mean "whatever". This filler phrase meaning something like "so" or "therefore" pops up in French conversation similarly to how "like" peppers the speech of an American teenager. It can bewilder French learners who don't understand how it can be so omnipresent yet have no actual meaning.

I thought it would be viens de So, I asked my friend who comes from Strasbourg, who was then obtaining a degree in German and she tells me that her family use viens de. She, however, uses suis de Viens de was used in some parts of France but suis de usually had the majority usage.
It identifies a speaker or supporter with those who were killed at the Charlie Hebdo shooting, and by extension, a supporter of freedom of speech and resistance to armed threats. Some journalists embraced the expression as a rallying cry for the freedom of self-expression.

When I was 19 years old, after five years of back-and-forth trips that grew longer each time, I finally relocated officially from the United States to France.

The moment he said it, it made perfect sense.
