What happened tonight in Paris is just horrible. I don’t even know what else to say about it except it’s awful.
Paris is a beautiful city. I visited there in 2004 and want to go back someday soon.
I have watched Casablanca probably 20 times. It is one of my favorite movies and one of the greatest movies ever made. And the most effecting scence for me, every time, is the part where the Nazis are in the bar and start singing their garbage Nazi song and then slowly the rest of the bar patrons (led by the freedom figher Victor Laszlo) start singing La Marseillaise and eventually drown out the Nazis. It is a very powerful scene and it always always always makes me cry.
The terrorists only win if we are afraid. But we can show them with our voices that together we are stronger than them and we will drown them out.
