I went to the "Hommage national à Simone Veil" (National hommage to Simone Veil) at the Invalides this morning.

Got there early, made it into the yard of the Invalides and spent probably far too long in the sun for someone wearing all black -- at least I didn't straight up collapse, like one of the men of the Garde républicaine did. Several other people also felt faint had to be evacuated. I can speak for them, but to me it was worth it and would still have been worth it if I'd collapsed.

I started crying when Macron said she'd get into the Panthéon -- I can't think of anyone who deserves it more, tbh -- when I had been bravely holding back tears previously. I'm tearing up again.

I'm so glad I went and I'm so glad she's getting into the Panthéon.

I'm glad she's getting into the Panthéon too, and I'm glad that going to the memorial was such a worthwhile and meaningful experience for you.
