Fraternité

“He who contemplates the depths of Paris is seized with vertigo.
Nothing is more fantastic. Nothing is more tragic.
Nothing is more sublime.”
– Victor Hugo

St. Genevieve (patron saint of Paris) makes confidence and calm to frightened Parisians of the approach of Attila, by Pierre Puvis de Chavannes:

      Charlie,

      I don’t think it’s going to end for a long, long time. This is the world now. It’s horrific.

        The planner … organizer or whatever you would call him … I hesitate to use the word ” mastermind” … has been killed, along with a second wave of terrorists. Now if this is justice or revenge, I don’t know … but they will act out their madness on innocent people no more.

          Charlie,

          Yes, I’ve been following all the developments. I figured they would definitely catch that guy, but there’s always another one and another one, more plots, more attacks. It’s all extremely disturbing.

      Derek,

      Prayers constantly. I can’t look at those images of death and destruction anymore. I’m with you on your call for justice.
