The Vote

I moved to France from Canada in 1970, and I have lived there most of my adult life. The building of Europe has been the continent's most hopeful and visionary project, for us and for our children, even if the vision has been badly shaken by financial and refugee crises, lack of leadership and resistance to what seems to me inevitable globalism among segments of the population who have not only least profited, but perhaps most suffered from it. Yesterday's vote is a tremendous disappointment; I hope it's not the tip of a great big mid-Atlantic iceberg.
