The Rant Foundry would like to take this opportunity to express deep sympathy and the most heartfelt condolences to the citizens of Paris and the people of France; the families and loved ones of the victims of the November 13th attacks, those continuing to live in fear for their safety, those who will be called upon in these times of emergency.
Throughout the last century the gentle and proud people of France, the authors of so much that symbolises the aspirations and desires of those that call ourselves civilised and cultured, have been subjected to unspeakable violence and acts of terrorism often swept over their picturesque country by forces beyond their control. War has cast its shadow across the nation for so much of its recent history and now the dread spectre of terror rises.
Our hearts go out to all French men, women, and children – may you find the strength to endure and overcome.
Vive la France!
