Beautiful Fireworks to Celebrate Those on Front Lines
The world celebrates Spring even amid the sadness and isolation we all feel. It’s a deliberate choice daily to find the good in this situation but there is one definite bright spot…Our healthcare workers in all capacities, our first responders, our firemen and police men and women.
I deliberated over how we could lift up those here and decided that nothing is more celebratory than fireworks. So join with us in saluting these dedicated folks committed to taking care of those who have COVID-19. It’s a small gesture, but let’s think of these servants throughout the weekend.
One quick update on Pierre and Laurie. They are at this moment riding a train to finally get home. Their luggage didn’t keep up with them, but they consider it a non-issue at this point. God bless them as they recover from this horrible nightmare.
These fireworks pictures are from various Bastille Days over the years. Enjoy!

What better way to honor these brave, front line men and women. So thankful Pierre and Laurie will soon be home!

The beautiful fireworks were an awesome way to pay tribute and also to celebrate Pierre and Laurie heading home.
Let’s not forget pharmacists, trash haulers grocery workers, food delivery people, bankers, truck drivers and all of those teachers trying to figure out how to help their students from home and probably caring for their own kids, too. Foreworks for all of them!

Of course, I meant “fireworks.”

Grateful they are on the last leg of their journey home. This pandemic has taught us to slow down a bit and appreciate the truly wonderful and more simple things in life.

Great pictures. I’m sure your heirs are glad that you don’t have to use and process Kodachrome for all these great photos. I’ll be shooting off my own fireworks if they decide that’s is safe to allow Le Toure to proceed. I believe it closely coincides with Bastille Day. Thanks

Hey, they aren’t going to want to see or wear those clothes or see any of that stuff for quite a long long time – I bet they are SICK of them, I would be! So glad they are headed home Thank you for the fireworks!

I’m trying to forward the Forbes article of 20 Paris photos in lockdown. Your sight won’t let me. Says it appears to be spam. If you haven’t already seen it , and would like to, ay e you could send me your email address and I could send it that way.
