Sitting here in California, miles away from Paris, my daughter and
many people I love and admire, it would be easy to move from worry to
anger over the terrible events of Friday night. But I can't. In my
lifetime, there have been too many tales of Parisian resilience and
courage, too many moments of heart warming, reassuring celebration
following some awful occurrence, too many complex, scary stories ending joyfully with
"That will show them" and a burst of laughter. All profound examples that a life well lived is indeed
the best revenge.
