fluctuat nec mergitur (Victory?)

Last week’s Photo Challenge mentioned “forget the sad times” and the topic was Victory. Well, it’s not that easy to forget the sad times when one works barely 1 1/2 mile those sad events and live 2 1/2 miles away and have friends living in the vicinity and teach at a school nearby and lost a pupil from our 1st year’s masters degree at the Paris School of Business. At first I was very angry and felt like I should carry on unabated (the motto “keep calm and carry on” came to mind of course). But all week it felt like we were able to play football in the middle of the once busy streets and everybody felt dejected (and angry). Yet, we shall never surrender, as our motto mentions: Fluctuat Nec Mergitur, (the boat shall be rocked but not sunk), and this will be our true Victory.
