Yesterday we took a little trip to a medieval town call Tournon-d’Angenais. The old bastide village sits atop a high hill with views in all directions. Although there aren’t many buildings surviving from the middle ages, the village has created a wonderful garden to commemorate all those who have died in war. Each war from WWI through Indochina and Algeria has a plaque outlining French involvement and the numbers killed and wounded, both civilian and military. The final couple of plaques ask what about tomorrow, is peace possible? Looking out at the beautiful French countryside one must hope it is.
