A Moment Of Silence: Polytechnique

Standard

Bonsoir tout le monde,

I hope you have all had a lovely Tuesday. First off, I want to thank everyone who has read this blog, liked the posts and is currently following the blog. Seriously it means a lot and I am humbled to share my stories with you. Second I want to recommend a movie for you to see.

The film is called Polytechnique and it is inspired by events that occurred on December 6th 1989. On this date a man named Marc Lepine entered the University and killed 14 women, before committing suicide. Polytechnique is told through the point of view of a male and female student attending the school. At the beginning of the film, we also get a very small insight behind the man responsible. The movie is shot in black and white and silence is a powerful tool used to speak on its own.

I’m going to leave you with the trailer for the film, but before I do I want to ask you to take a moment of silence today and on December 6th. Remember the victims and the affected families of this terrible tragedy. Remember as well, the person responsible because although we can never fully understand or know the reasoning behind his actions, he also has/had a family. Be grateful for the good things in your life, be it your family, friends, work, pets, fellow bloggers, anything and everything.

A la prochaine,

De moi, pour toi
