“Your task will not be an easy one. Your enemy is well trained, well equipped and battle-hardened. He will fight savagely.”
For many years, France and the United States have worked together striving for a world where their citizens could pursue their daily activities in a safe environment. This has become more important as the world has become smaller because of technology and our global economy.
Millions of tourists, including my husband and I, travel to Paris each year to take in the beautiful City of Light. We have also seen the results up close and personal of terrorist activity in both New York and Boston.
After Friday’s events, we extend our French allies our sincere sympathies for the loss of lives, wish full recovery for those injured, and prayers for strength as they move through this tragedy and learn to live with a new normal. Paris be strong. Your friends are with you.
