La République

Needless to say that today I am intensely proud of also being French.

Look at the pictures in the post below.  A country which after a bitter election is able to come together in such a way, all respecting the symbols of La République, is a country that still has some greatness left in it.  I do not know about other French folks, but this one here is reconciled in full with the vote of last Sunday. Come what may come.

And chapeau to Sarkozy who after having made such a spectacle of himself costing him the election, reminds the world in case it forgot that he has always been a democrat first.  As I wrote in other posts, greatness is always measured in the dark hours and Sarkozy comes out flying.  Compare this to the dark hours of Chavez we are living today where all the pettiness of the world is falling upon us.....
