A Very Sad Day

Yesterday, I left my class at the Alliance Française at noon. We wished our teacher, who is from France,  "Happy Bastille Day" and some of the students were planning to attend a local Bastille Day celebration. When I arrived home, I learned about the tragedy in Nice.

I  watched the fireworks on Bastille Day from le Jardin Albert 1er in Nice some years ago. It was such a beautiful setting! So many people gathered together to celebrate freedom on a balmy summer night.

Terrorism and the murder of innocent people is unpardonable.

  3. Late to this, but you express it very well - for all the terrorist attacks, not just the one which struck so close to home. Unpardonable.
