Peace For Paris

In the midst of outrage over Starbuck’s cups, we are brutally reminded of what is really important.  My thoughts and prayers are with the people of Paris tonight.  Paris is my favorite city in the world and I am devastated tonight.  I have no wise words to explain away this senseless tragedy, or any other act of terrorism.  Instead tonight, I leave you with a little bit of the beauty of Paris and a  quote from Mark Twain:

“Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness, and many of our people need it sorely on these accounts. Broad, wholesome, charitable views of men and things cannot be acquired by vegetating in one little corner of the earth all one’s lifetime.”
