a Card: Paris Thanks You!

Hello dear Friends! I was born and raised in Paris, I've grown, studied, laughed, loved and felt freer in Paris than any other place on earth. Today and until Wednesday, the Eiffel Tower will be lit in BLUE-WHITE-RED. This has inspired me to make a virtual "thank you" card for everyone who has shared their sympathy with the people of France. Thank You dear Friends! 
★★★  LIBERTÉ ÉGALITE FRATERNITÉ will prevail! ★★★
Vive la République! Vive la France!

Perfect card, sad this happened. The set up of the picture is also perfect. I was there last October and bought several key chains for souvenirs, sweet memories when I saw the picture.

What a beautiful tribute, love! We were glued to the television as soon as we heard. It brought back such familiar and gripping fears from not that long ago right here in the U.S.A. France, especially Paris, is in my thoughts and prayers.
