    1. It's been incredibly hard to see on Twitter people looking for loved ones. I really admire the work doctors, firemen, paramedics and policemen have done those past few days.

  9. I lived in France for three years as a child. My father was in the US Air Force stationed at Chambley Air Base in the Lorraine. We visited Paris at Christmas and I fell in love with the city of light. My heart breaks for Paris and France. As events unfolded on 13 November I was watching on tv, checking Facebook and conversing on Facebook with friends in France. Thank goodness my friends were all safe but all I could think about were families who would find out a loved one was gone. I've missed your blog posts but am so sad you returned because of such a tragedy. You and all of France are in my heart, thoughts and prayers.

    1. It's still a relief to know that all your friends are safe, it's also the first thing I checked, that all my Parisian friends were texting me back. It was selfish to do and I can't even imagine what people who lost someone must feel.

  10. My heart and thoughts go out to you and all the citizens of France, and to the families and loved ones of those lost to us forever because of senseless violence and hatred. I'll never understand what makes people so hateful.

  36. Tant de soutien et de sympathie apporte une belle lumière dans ces jours sombres. Voir tous ces rassemblements, ces illuminations de monuments aux couleurs de la France et ces marseillaises chantées est vraiment émouvant et réchauffe le cœur.

  40. My heart and prayers are with you and all of France. I remember al to well how it felt when we were attacked on 9/11 and what a feeling of helplessness it is. I pray for you, your country, and the people directly affected by this senseless tragedy. I simply do not understand the evil that pushes people to harm those they do not even know.

  44. You have been in my thoughts, Magali. It's all so sad. I am praying that somehow these senseless acts can be put to an end.

  45. Dear Magali,
    we must all try our best to end this cruel madness in the name of religion. End it in the name of humanity! At the moment all our thoughts are with the people in France and Paris, who have been attacked just because they are alive. Being a teacher must be very hard at the moment - all those questions, which are so difficult to answer.
    Cordially yours,
    Sarah
