Dave, a VERY loose translation  70 years after getting my AB when I was an 
English lit major with a French minor.  Remember this is just the gist giving 
the idea - not a literal translation and there may b e other Americans who 
can do better, how about it Bruce Filardi?  Anyhow:       "In this tragic 
moment where  words are such a poor expression, but the first thing which 
comes through is that we are all Americans!  We are all New  Yorkers, also 
surely as John Kennedy said, in 1963 in Berlin:  we are Berlinians - ("Ich 
bin ein Berliner") How one can but say in this moment most grave in our 
history, deeply solidly with these people and this county, the United States, 
sharing  freedom  thus our firm feelings."
Instead of murdering the King's English, I guess you'd say I murdered the 
King's  French!   But in any language, it is helpful to have the 
international supportive emails.
All this has diminished the importance of my grief over having to put my 
brave, loyal cat. PrettyGirl, to sleep - and I have ordered the iris from Don 
Spoon that he named for her a few years ago - PRETTYGIRL - to plant on her 
grave among my iris bed.
