Bastille Day 2016

I did not intend to post today but my sadness made me want to memorialize yesterday’s sad events in Nice. I have many French friends and fellow bloggers and their hearts must be broken today. Such a happy occasion to be violated in this way. I had a belated honeymoon in the south of France and remember Nice with great fondness and nostalgia. May they rest in peace.

Je ne suis pas l’intention de poster aujourd’hui, mais ma tristesse m’a donné envie de commémorer tristes événements d’hier à Nice . J’ai beaucoup d’ amis français et collègues blogueurs et leur cœur doit être brisé aujourd’hui. Une telle occasion heureuse d’ être violé de cette manière . J’ai eu une lune de miel tardive dans le sud de la France et rappelle Nice avec beaucoup de tendresse et de nostalgie. Puissent-ils reposer en paix.

  1. Thank you for posting this Kerry. My heart is indeed broken today. But I am lucky. I am still walking, talking, crying, feeling. How many more before the world comes to it’s senses. How many more.

  2. I was thinking about you today and how this violence has tainted everything. It is becoming obvious that we are actually in the middle of a war that has no clear enemy. Turkey has just declared a military coup and the ports are closed. I wonder if they are under imminent threat? I met a French lady at a shop today and conversed in French a little. I commiserated but was struck that our immediate friendship was a sign that most of the world is good and kind. Hugs K x
