David Lebovitz' December 1 Newsletter

Today in David Lebovitz' December 1 newsletter, he expressed best what we are feeling in Paris right now and these past terrible weeks.

I quote here:
 'In November, a terrible blow was dealt to Paris, a city that we all love so much. It didn't happen in major tourist spots, but in an ordinary neighborhood with restaurants, and nightclubs, which happens to be mine. We don't have fancy chocolate shops or upscale pastry places, but do have outdoor markets, bakeries, and restaurants, and are considered a diverse, multicultural neighborhood. (However it's no problem, because being a small city, you're never all that far from a French chocolate "fix.")
It's hard to comprehend what happened and there were a variety of thoughtful remembrances, opinions and discussions related the attacks. But I hope that the city can not only rebound from what happened while continuing to process the grief and shock, and honor those whose lives were lost, but will reemerge with a greater focus on celebrating its diversity and all the positive qualities that make Paris the iconic city that it's become by evolving, while retaining its unique historical and cultural position in Europe, and the world'.
Thank you David.

  6. As I read this the television is broadcasting a mass shooting in San Bernadino, CA. Last week a crazy person killed people and a police officer at a Planned Parenthood facility in Colorado. We need your lovely blog and David's for a little respite from this cruel world.
