Neighborhood: All Over, Letter From Abroad

TWO MONTHS AGO I DECIDED TO VISIT NY WITH MY SON ROMAIN.

NY HAS A SO BIG VITALITY AND A SO BEAUTIFUL COSMOPOLITAIN PEOPLE THAT I THINK IT IS A VERY GOOD EXAMPLE OF LIFE FOR MY SON. AND IT IS !!!!

WE VISITED MANY PLACES OF NY AND OF COURSE THE TWINS. AT THE TOP A PHOTOGRAPHER IN A SHOP PROPOSED US TO TAKE A ELECTRONIC PHOTO, WHERE YOU CAN SEE ME AND ROMAIN FALLING FROM THE TOP OF TOWERS. SINCE WE LEARNT THE ATTACK OF TWINS WE HAVE BEEN SHOCKED. WE ARE SO SAD THAT WE CAN T LOOK ANY MORE AT THIS PHOTO …WHERE IS THE PHOTOGRAPHER?

HE WAS SO KIND !

BUT WE BELIEVE IN YOUR VITALITY AND WE ARE WITH YOU AMERICAN PEOPLE BECAUSE WE LOVE YOU …WE DON’T FORGET THAT WE GIVE YOU THE LIBERTY STATUE AND YOU GIVE US THE FREEDOM ON OMAHA BEACH!

GOD BLESS AMERICA AND FRANCE WHICH ARE LOVERS OF FREEDOOM.

(There have been some other notes from abroad of this nature…)

First my english isn’t better but anyway I am not happy today. I say only a word: sorry ! We re very sad with all what happned there. I have a parent in NYC and don’t know if she is life. The brasilian people are with you. good luck !
