Solidarité avec Paris ! (Weekend Reflections # 321)

New York City            Bleu, blanc et rouge becomes red, white and blue when it's reflected.

  I took a walk after celebrating my wife's birthday in NYC and found this reflection of a building.  It was a touching tribute to a city that I love and have visited many times.


My heartfelt condolences to Paris after yet another horrific Islamic terrorist attack.


Je vous souhaite un week-end plein de paix !

So fitting, James—I won't hesitate to return to Paris, and I bet you feel the same. Bon weekend!

Paris. It's terrible, my thoughts are with the victims.

Paris. Il est terrible, mes pensées sont avec les victimes.

I knew you'd have the perfect reflection ... I've been at such a loss for words - my heart broken. It's good to come visit here and know there is a love for Paris and gentle, wonderful souls from all over the world that come together to share a bit of home, a bit of themselves each week.

A wonderful image to show solidity for a grieving nation

Andrea Priebe said...

All hearts are sad on days where man turns on man ... there is no logic to it and it can't be explained even by those who participate. I am sad for the French and the pain they are suffering ... I am sad for the immigrants who have had to flee their homelands and sad for all of us who will have to endure these trying times. Very touching tribute, James ...

A worth tribute, James and colorful!
Human tragedy like 911 for the victims - this time it came closer because my son left Paris just in time. Even tragic for the family of the mastermind, coming to Belgium to have a better life - hard to grasp!

Dianne said...

What are they doing to our beautiful city ?? . But a wonderful show of solidarity from not only the French but from around the world. James my post for today only show a small blue icon instead of a picture - is there any way you can fix it from there - thnx

Belated Thanksgiving James!
Malgré tous ces événements mondiaux, nous tenons à célébrer chaque année Thanksgiving qui est un grand moment pour nous de toutes ces années passées aux US et de ces belles valeurs que nous tenons à garder.
