IMG_1666Today, Strasbourg in France is the seat of the European Parliament. This is the old town – picturesque, quaint – a memory developed over generations for us to reflect upon. What tales could it tell? All history is told in stories – seen through lenses of the tellers; some written, some by word of mouth, some enshrined in tradition by victors, some whispered within communities by the oppressed – but all passed down with an importance to be remembered, understood, valued and preserved. It is about RESPECT and being prepared to listen critically and to ‘walk in the shoes’ of others.
