Paris changed, I changed. We don't forget.
Thank you for your beautiful words. I remember that night like it was last week. We happened to be in Venice but so many people we love were in Paris. One was living near Bataclan & we thought he was at the concert. I remember the long hours waiting to hear that my people were safe. There is a little window near the Accademia bridge that hung a French flag that morning. I look for it every time I walk by.
Thank you for the reminder. I think about the Paris attacks often these days. Remembering the global outpouring of support, I contrast that to what feels like the world shrugging its collective shoulders - or worse - about the hostages taken by Hamas and the victims of the October 7 civilian massacre 😢
Thank you for sharing this. I feel the same way. And here’s what I wrote for the New York Times: https://www.nytimes.com/2015/11/19/opinion/the-poignancy-of-the-paris-targets.html
