This morning on my NBC Connecticut Facebook page, I posted cute video from Lima, Peru. A bulldog skateboarded his way into the Guinness Book of Records.
The video made me smile for what it was, but also because of where it happened. I recognized the park where people lined up to take part in the event. I had been there. I hope to be there again.
This evening, I watch the awful events unfold in Paris. This video brings tears for what it is, and because of where it happened. I recognize so many sights in Paris, because I have had the pleasure of being in that great city several times. I hope to be there again.
But the world changed tonight. Again.
I wish I thought it were for the better.
