On 14 July France celebrates Bastille Day, happy Bastille Day!
In 1789 the people of Paris stormed the Bastille, a fortress prison that held political prisoners jailed by the Royal Government of Louis XVI. The taking of the Bastille signaled the beginning of the French Revolution and became a symbol of the collapse of the ancient regime. The French Revolution stood for the ideas of LIBERTY, EQUALITY, and FRATERNITY, these virtues stand for being able to make one’s own decisions freely and having the opportunity to be able to express one’s own beliefs without fear.
Vive la France!
