Бегемот средних широт

комментарий в NYT

У меня нету твиттера. Говорят, этот текст, по-английски, заполнил твиттер. Я о нём узнал из французского радио, т.е. по-французски. Но английский текст найти легко. Это комментарий под этой статьей человека с ником blackpoodles из Санта-Барбары. Мне кажется, очень хорошо сформулировано. И естественно, я согласен с содержанием.

France embodies everything religious zealots everywhere hate: enjoyment of life here on earth in a myriad little ways: a fragrant cup of coffee and buttery croissant in the morning, beautiful women in short dresses smiling freely on the street, the smell of warm bread, a bottle of wine shared with friends, a dab of perfume, children paying in the Luxembourg Gardens, the right not to believe in any god, not to worry about calories, to flirt and smoke and enjoy sex outside of marriage, to take vacations, to read any book you want, to go to school for free, to play, to laugh, to argue, to make fun of prelates and politicians alike, to leave worrying about the afterlife to the dead.
No country does life on earth better than the French.
Paris, we love you. We cry for you. You are mourning tonight, and we with you. We know you will laugh again, and sing again, and make love, and heal, because loving life is your essence. The forces of darkness will ebb. They will lose. They always do.
