I am stunned and shocked by the events in Paris on Friday night. I am not French, but I love our adopted country and feel so very privileged to be able to live here.
It is so hard to explain all of this to the children, how do you tell a 9 year old exactly what happened? But tell them we must and we did. We hugged them and held them tight. A silent sadness hung over the village today, a feeling of utter disbelief. We stayed at home, a family together, no one felt like going anywhere.
My thoughts and prayers are with everyone in Paris and their families.
