We will always have French kissing. Quoiqu’il arrive, on se roulera toujours des pelles.
This past week has been as intense as it gets for a lot of people in Paris. I happened to be visiting for a couple week. We were all affected one way or another. Horrible stories after horribles stories were shared, friends lost loved ones, were wounded, attacked while doing nothing more than just enjoying life. Shock, disgust, sadness came first. Some anger too. But, way above these feelings, the most prevalent and raw one that came naturally from everybody in the city was LOVE. It came naturally, almost as cliché as it gets when one talks about Paris. People are hugging even more, kissing even more, drinking even more, smoking even more while honoring the ones who passed. What happened only strengthened people’s love for life and for each other without distinctions. It’s beautiful to see and it gives me hope.
Thanks #stefaniemiano #biancaobrien #johnkarsenty for making that beautiful moment happen
