Allons enfants de la patrie, le jour de glorie est arrive! Bon Fete Nationale et 14 Juillet citoyennes! Happy Bastille day to all! Be prepared to a flood of France today on your dash ;) Plus, if i’m listening today La Marseillaise or Ah, ca ira, so will the neighbors. Vive la France!
Je me sens triste
pour la ville de Nice. J’ai quelques amis là-bas, et heureusement, eux, ils étaient
en sécurité. Mais pour toutes les personnes innocentes qui sont mortes, et même
sur le jour du 14 juillet… C’est absolument horrible.
My outfit today :) a tricolor hairband with tricolor feathers and blue, white striped shirt and a red ribbon as a necklace. In the card says: Happy Bastille Day, citizens! Stay virtuous and VIVE LA FRANCE! I also drew a tricolor there in the corner and under it is 14 juillet 1789 with a infinity sign. Have a great day!
