Sunday Stills: Billboards

Seen in a French village

To all Frenchmen

France has lost a battle !
But France has not lost the war ! (La France a perdu une bataille! Mais la France n’a pas perdu la guerre!)

A makeshift government may have capitulated, giving way to panic, forgetting honour, delivering their country into bondage. Yet nothing is lost !
Nothing is lost, because this war is a world war. In the free universe, immense forces have not yet swung into operation. Some day these forces will crush the enemy. On that day, France must be present at the victory. She will then regain her liberty and her greatness. Such is my goal, my only goal !
That is why I urge all Frenchmen, wherever they may be, to unite with me in action, in sacrifice and in hope.

Our country is in mortal danger.
Let us all fight to save her.

Long live France !

This week’s  Sunday Stills was ‘Billboards or Road Advertisements’.  I’m not sure whether this photograph qualifies as a billboard or road-advertisment, but there can be no better time to reflect on darker days.

About Sandra

I cruise the French waterways with my husband four or five months a year, and write fiction and poetry. I love animals, F1 motor racing, French bread and my husband, though not necessarily in that order.

I'd love to hear your views; it reassures me I'm not talking to myself.
