The Peace of God to all that belong to the light,
In the middle of the aftermatch of the French Army and police trying to suffocate these horrendous terrorist wave that has left back more than two
hundred people in between injured and dead in Paris and its surroundings, it is interesting to remember the figure that joins France and America
closer than nobody else in our common History.
I know many of you are thinking in the Marquise de Lafayette, that fought in the American Independece war, or perhaps in Joseph Bonaparte, the brother
of the emperor Napoleon, who died in Philadelphia, or Benjamin Franklyin or Thomas Jefferson that both carried out so important diplomatic work in
Paris, but no, I am not referrring to any of them.
The greatest American - French Hero of all times is an African American lady that grew up in poverty and suffered all the rigor of the time of the
racial segregation until she decided to migrate to France and try to continue oversees a dancer career that she started in Broadway without not too
Josephine Baker became soon after in the 1930s the great diva of the cabaret shows in Paris and also a Movie star, a singer, a great performer in all
aspects. But those achievements were not enough to satisfy her thrist of conquest, since in the most grave hour of the French History, when the Nazi
empire invaded the country she became Hero of the resistance.
She risked her life alot to deffend her adoptive nation and finally she was sent to Morrocco by the resistance to boycott the third Reich plans to
expand their influence to such strategic site. It was there where she joined to the American forces and in the way made peace again with her country
The spirit of Josephine Baker today stands to call us to don't leave France alone in this so dark hour, to extend our arms to a nation that needs our
support and that we must deffend at any cost since their liberty is also ours.
Here for the ones of you that don't know nothing about this admirable woman that spent her last years adopting orphan children of all nationalities,
here a link of her fascinating life:
Josephine Baker came back at the peak of her career and was a key factor to promote the desegregation, she only performed in American soil where
shows were admitting people of all races all togehter gathered to see her in scene.
The thread is open for all of you that wants to explore, discuss and comment the rich experience of life of a woman that made the American dream occur
May God give courage and strength to all the ones that are right now mourning friends or relatives in Paris, give eternal peace to the fatal
victims and inspire all the sectors in France to join together in deffense of a fatherland that is certainly injured but is ready to deffend its
integrity from the evil empire of terrorism that ISIS represents.
France gave to America Lady LIberty that is always greeting immigrants coming from so far to find her appear in the Horizon on the New York bay with
her torch illuminating their hopes and the ones of all nations.
America gave to France Elizabeth Baker, a woman of incredible passion, strength and character to deffend all the values of principles that identify a
democracy and that illuminated the performce scene where dreams of freedom become reality for all the ones that once watched her.
Thanks for your attention,
