Peace For Paris

~ Jean Julian ~

I was planning on posting something so much different today, but after the horrific events that unfolded in Paris, well…

While I was watching the coverage on CNN, I stumbled across a couple of things online that I think speak to the resilience of the people of Paris. First, there’s their motto:

Elle est agitee par les vagues, et ne sombre pas.

English translation ~ “She is tossed by waves but does not sink.”

The second is this iconic quote from Les Miserables, by Victor Hugo:

Even the darkest night will end and the sun will rise.
