Bastille Day

Start:      Jul 14, ‘07
Location:      France and the Francophone/Francophile world

French revolutionaries stormed a prison, symbolically marking the end of tyranny, but of course walked into another kind.
Yet this is a day to be remembered, especially since the revolutionary ideals of “Liberty, Equality, Fraternity” have yet to be truly realized, even in France.
