NOTES FROM THIS SIDE OF THE SEINE :
May 6, 2012, chants and singing in the streets, the children’s are the very loudest voices…
“Hollande, Hollande!” & “Sarkozy, C’est Fini!”
The faces are young, young, young, It is their day and their enthusiasm, the first Socialist government they have ever known in their lifetimes in France…no blood, only hope. Tens of thousands have come to la place de la Bastille…I joined. I waited. I will…wait.
Yes, they sang The Marseillaise after the now president elect François Hollande arrived after midnight. Yes, there is now another year’s spring. A “French spring.”
I will wait. I will hope that it blooms.
