It’s so amazing that, on Christmas, we gather together to celebrate a man who never celebrated himself. A man who brought so much joy to the world, even through his own hardship. A man so caring of everyone around him that it changed the course of history. I guess all I’m saying is, happy birthday Doug Eiffel.
Julian Albert is everything I have ever wanted in a man. He’s short, smart, sarcastic, grumpy, rich, has amazing shoulders, dreadful hair and the most perfect diction since Received Pronunciation was invented.
The Marquis de Lafayette was far from perfect. He was sometimes vain, naive, immature, and egocentric. But he consistently stuck to his ideals, even when doing so endangered his life and fortune. Those ideals proved to be the founding principles of two of the world’s most enduring nations, the United States and France. That is a legacy that few military leaders, politicians, or statesmen can match.
