I just returned from a trip to France in early January. When I saw the sculpture "Les Braves" and read the words beside it, it was the only moment on my trip that I got choked up. All the war remembrance sites are moving, but this one- I suppose because a French citizen created it- affected me the most. And I loved it.

Tongue in Cheek

masterful, I cannot wait to see it!


wow - that is an amazing sculpture; I hadnt seen that one before. I like how sharp and dangerous it looks; almost unable to get past the row. So much pain and rage I think. Very sad. All the sculptures and walls... you would think we would stop doing war. Can it really be that difficult? Sigh.


I have never seen this or even heard of it before. How very moving..While I know we can't always be in a state of remembering the past, I do feel like maybe there should be a minute or five of every day set aside to remember the fallen brave who gave up their one and only precious lives for what they believed in, for doing the right thing. In a society today which is so lacking in integrity, this is a lovely post to remind me. Thank you!

... and now I understand the britishness of your writing... honour and not honor, etc... I was wondering about it but then read more about you. You have a very interesting life! I love it when I meet people like you. I have been working everywhere, also in Mandela's South Africa. That was a very interesting 2 years.

Have a great day there -

Hi Tara - nice to read you again! I am glad you liked my culture-shift post. You know this reality.

I love your post... Always so thoughtful with a great sense of aesthetics. The picture is great in what it reflects of silent glory and sense of loss and - then - peaceful.

Take care!

Ann Marie
