I can’t even begin to understand how you are feeling after these most recent terror attacks that have absolutely shattered you to your core.
I know that I am but a singular blip in this big, big world of ours. And that my thoughts and feelings will likely just get lost in the waves of sympathy and support that you will be getting from many around the world.
But I feel like I want to tell you… that I need to tell you… that we love you and that our thoughts and prayers are with you during this terrible, terrible time.
We have seen your beautiful country. And Paris, you were absolutely lovely. We loved everything about you. Your beautiful city… your majestic Eiffel Tower… your food… your amazing people… your wonderful French language…
You opened your doors and allowed us in to catch but a glimpse of what is one of the most beautiful cities we have ever seen. One of the most amazing cultures we have ever experienced. And allowed us to have what was, one of the best weeks of our lives.
I do not understand why anyone… anywhere… would want to lay harm to you Paris. And all I can say right now, is that you most definitely didn’t deserve this.
The city of love rocked by acts of hate. Cowardly acts of hate.
But if there is one thing I do know Paris, it’s that you are not just beautiful… You are strong. You are resilient. You are united.
I know that you have the strength to get through this. Not only together, but also with the rest of the world right behind you. I know you will come back from this stronger than ever. More united than ever. And more resilient than ever.
Paris, you will recover from this. And both Renee and I, along with the whole world, will continue to send our thoughts and prayers and help, until your wounds have fully healed.
We will continue, to pray for you Paris.
And we will see you in all your glory again… one day in the future.
