Despite my self-proclaimed hiatus from blogging, in light of Friday’s tragedy in Paris, I felt compelled to type a few words as inadequate as they may be in the wake of the devastation: “Liberté, Égalité, Fraternité.”
May these three words that symbolize the mentality of the country and its people continue to resonate strongly–now more than ever–as they, along with the rest of the world, rally from Friday night’s horror and continue to pursue liberty, equality, and fraternity…especially in the face of such tumult and grief.
The country of France and its people have proved themselves valiant, resilient, and united throughout history. The Arc de Triomphe stands as just one concrete evidence of such a legacy. The present time will be no different as the French once again triumph.
For those Twinkles who are in France, please know that our thoughts and prayers are with you. We hope that you are safe and look forward to hearing that you are well. *Fighting!*
