Hello kitties!

Today is a very special day for those of us with French names, that's right, it's Bastille Day! Happy Bastille Day kitties! My mommy studies modern revolutions and her specialty is the French Revolution, so today is a very important day for us. Today, in 1789 the people of Paris stormed the Bastille prison, a symbol of the old regime and political oppression from their king in search of powder for their weapons. It is considered the official start of the French Revolution and was celebrated the next year as La FĂȘte Nationale. The French Revolution marks the birth of the modern era in the western world for many historians, and my mommy considers it to be one of the most important events in world history. For her, it is the moment of creation of the birth of democracy and liberty in western thought. My mommy gets very emotional about her histories don't you know.

So, there you go, a very mini lesson in history on Bastille day. Today, in honor of this holiday, River and I will play the French national anthem on our pages while our mommy walks around the house singing it over and over again. To all my fellow French loving kitties out there, Happy Bastille Day from the lovely citizeness Simone!
