Message of Solidarity to Sister Cities in France

On Friday, July 15, the following message was sent by Albion College professor of French Dianne Guenin-Lelle on behalf of the City of Albion Sister City Committee to friends in the communities of Noisy-le-Roi and Bailly, France, after the tragic event in Nice on Thursday, July 14.

Nos amis chéris,

Nous sommes avec vous dans ce moment si tragique, si triste, et nous restons en solidarité avec les valeurs de la république. L'humanite nous lie les uns aux autres, et nous sommes encore plus liés avec vous comme des soeurs et des frères car en fait nous sommes une seule grande famille malgré cet océan qui paraît nous séparer.

Nous vous embrassons très, très fort,

Dianne pour le Sister City Committee
