Little girls giggling and running from the school gates at home time singing out Macaron pour president!..again and again, laughing at their play on words. Hearing ten year olds talking of their parents wanting to move abroad if the opponent to Macron should win. Fear has blown in gusts about us for two weeks now, and disbelief at the close proximity of the alternate party. Today my husband spent the day in the garage, anxious, needing to occupy himself rather than think about the election.
Now the country has spoken and we can celebrate and support a man who speaks with positivity and reason. Keeping europe together, rather than ripping people apart.
Emmanuel Macron gives us hope and here in our home we are truly joyful at his election.
