Why We Must Not Look Away

Lest we forget...

I took this photo in France;  it was carved on the side of Chartres Cathedral or Chateau de Chambord.  

Whatever side you are on about Syria (and believe me, I am all over the place), nations must stand together to let the evil despots and murderous dictators know this - atrocities using chemical weapons will not be allowed to happen without consequences.  In the 21st century, you can not slaughter the innocents with poison gas and chemical weapons and get away with it.

Never again.


  1. I am so in love with your photos of France. I so want to go there. One of these days!!!!

    I agree with you on never again!

  2. I'm all over the place too. We can't just stand by but I don't know what option would be a good one. There are some you just can't negotiate with!

    Oh ... and yes, it was a luxury to spend so much time at the museum! I was thinking about all the things I needed to get done then just had to surrender. I don't have AC and my place has been around a hundred degrees or more inside ... except the bedroom. I have a window AC in there. September is the hottest month here. I can't wait for fall!!!!!


Someone said comments are the heartbeat of blogs. I love to read your comments and learn so much from every one of you. Thanks for taking the time to talk to me.
