Bastille Day-le Quatorze Juillet 1789


Vive La France! but I didn’t always feel that way.I think that many Kiwis remember the sinking of the Rainbow Warrior in a New Zealand harbour-an act of terrorism against a sovereign country,and an ally that lost many of its men to the terrible war zones in France – an act that caused the loss of a man’s life-and the subsequent humiliating terms NZ was forced to accept.Long ago, I know- but the shadow remains.
But- the sun is shining, & I will probably sing the French national anthem tonight-What a great tune!
