I fell in love with Paris as a teenager, yet it wasn’t until early this year that I finally visited it.
The morning I found out about the attacks, I cried. To be honest, the strength of my own reaction surprised me. I’ve visited a lot of other countries where the people have shown me kindness and generosity. Perhaps this hit home because it could easily have been me.
I wrote this as a thank you, more than anything else, for the beautiful experiences that the city of lights gave me.
