Tricolor Flag Of France
Happy Bastille Day! Today, July 14, 1789, a French mob of revolutionaries stormed the Bastille prison in Paris, signaling the end of the French monarchy during the French Revolution. This day has become much more meaningful to me since learning through genealogical research that our family has some French ancestry. Life is full of unexpected surprises. Yes, I am a “son of Charlemagne”. This is my French connection. Reblogging an article from The Catholic Review on Bastille Day with link to musical selections from Les Miserables (see below). Happy Music Monday!
