Vive la France

I can't remember a time when I didn't long to go to Paris. In 2005, I finally got to go. Only for two days, but I filled those days by visiting the sites I'd always longed to see. I'll never, ever forget visiting Paris.

This is the second day of watching hours of news coverage of the senseless multiple murders in Paris, which happened only a day after the senseless multiple murders in Beirut. I will never, ever understand how human beings can do things like this to each other. Never.

I spent hours in front of CNN from very early Saturday morning until late into the day. I finally tore myself away because I just couldn't take the sadness anymore.

Paris is a beautiful city, one in which I have spent a great deal of time. It broke my heart to see it so damaged.

I agree completely with your sentiment, Billie. How can we keep doing this to each other? There must be a way for us all to co-exist as we spin through space on this tiny ball of rock.
