I don't have any words for what happened in Paris on Friday; or for what's been happening in the world lately. I felt sick to my stomach as we watched the news unfold in HD on our TV screen, phrases like, "total carnage", "terrible tragedy", "shock and disbelief" being thrown around by news anchors who looked just as bewildered as we felt.
John's due to be in Paris for a business trip tomorrow and as far as he's aware, everything's proceeding as normal. My mom asked me about our plans to visit together as a family in December and I - as of now, at least - fully intend to proceed as normal.
Because attempting to resume normality is defiance. Normality isn't giving in.
