A tous mes amis français, mes pensées vont vers vous et je vous souhaites courage et force afin de traverser ces moments difficiles.
In case any of my fellow Americans were unaware this message is an echo of the headline of Le Monde on 9/11: Today we are all Americans.
My parents were traveling in Europe immediately on and after 9/11, and everywhere they went people offered condolences and asked if they’d lost anyone that day. This generosity continued for the entire five weeks of their trip.
So the very least we can do is hold the people of Paris in our thoughts and prayers.
Reblogging for the comment. I thought this was familiar.
Aujourd’hui, tous nous sommes francais.
