Viva La Revolution

Those that make peaceful revolutions impossible; make violent revolution inevitable. ~ John F. Kennedy 

Happy Bastille Day! Today is Independence day in France. A common misconception about the uprising at Bastille was the intent to set the prisoners free. The original rioters were looking for proper ammunition. They were looting for firearms and cannons. This brought their search to the Bastille resulting in a brutal beheading of the prison governor and his officers. According to Time History.com, “That event bolstered the revolution’s political meaning and the idea of the storming of the Bastille as a demonstration against political tyranny, rather than a violent event.” Today is a day to celebrate your freedom to revolt. Commit a thought crime or maybe eat cake. We celebrated with a high energy smoothie (the British Hubby wasn’t excited about the color).

P.S. Just 7 hours and 8 minutes until TDS begins. Woot Woot!
