How can I thank you, all of you who were able to understand the immense grief of the French people after the attacks in Paris, showing us your support and your amazing love of Paris by the countless messages sent.  During these horrible days in January, I was in New York visiting the 9/11 Memorial and new museum devoted to the intolerable attack in 2011.  While my first reaction was sadness, I was gradually comforted by my admiration for these incredible tokens of love and solidarity that arrived from all over the world, often from strangers, distant relatives and from artists who expressed their grief in their works.   My friends from Canada, Rose and Herb come to Paris twice a year for a long three-week stay.
