    I have more faith in the French People than in their politicians or ours.

    Similar story from the Pinochet era where a group of women still scour the desert for the bone fragments of their relatives, since the 70s. Surprisingly they have found a number of bones that were identified.

    There's a video on it called Nostalgia For the Light.

    Quite touching.

    Amazing story. All these years she had no idea that a French town held her husband in such high regard and celebrated his sacrifice. I'm glad that she finally found him and found out the rest of the story!!! And that his story still lives on in that town!!!

    These stories always seem to cause it. I'm so glad she got her "closure" after all these years... I'm so disgusted with politicians in our country... But I am glad she can forgive the ineptitude of hers.
