- It's in part because of France, its Revolution and its Declaration of the Rights of Man that democracy spread to Europe in the 19th century
- A good number of the Founding Fathers of America were influenced by French thinkers like Voltaire and Montesquieu
- France fought bravely in the 1914-18 war to resist invasion by Germany, and stood fast even though the battles on its soil were terrible
I shall deny ignorance, and I shall remember.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY, FRANCE.
