    4 1/2 years ago my husband and I honeymooned in Paris because he had never been in Europe, had always wanted to visit Paris and thought "Who better to see Paris with than with somebody who speaks like a native?!" since his bride lived in Aix-en-Provence. Well, he fell in love with the City of Light and we returned last year in spite of Charlie Hebdo and had booked our return for this summer already when the horrendous events occurred. BUT, like last year's terrorist attack, we will not be cowed by those who are hoping to dim those brilliant Paris lights. While we will grieve for all the lives so senselessly lost we will also rise up in righteous wrath and realize that WE have a right to continue to live our lives in our beloved Paris.
