Yes. I get this question a lot.
After the attacks last November, I’ve had people question my decision to move to France, and even go so far as to tell me I shouldn’t go. I’m sure they meant well, but this is an extremely sensitive topic for me. I won’t let fear stop me from living. The French have the saying, “Fluctuat nec mergitur”, which means, “Tossed but not sunk.” Although the events were devastating, the country has chosen to continue to love and embrace life instead of hide with fear. I admire that.
