On this day when enormous crowds are gathering in Paris and other French cities, I’m there in spirit.
I look forward to being in Paris again, as soon as I can get back to one of the most beautiful and historic cities in the world. Paris has seen its share of turmoil over the years. Cloudy skies will clear. It seems each generation faces and overcomes new challenges. I wish Parisians, and citizens of other cities all across France, wisdom and courage in their current crisis.
I am hoping this winter of violence gives way to a springtime of peace, good will and understanding between all people.
