Wednesday French Inspiration

Crypte archéologique du parvis Notre-Dame 

Beneath Notre-Dame cathedral square is an archaeological crypt which preserves the foundations and vestiges of buildings which were constructed between the Gallo-Roman period and the 18th century.   There are remnants of bath houses, shops, hospitals, and house.  It is interesting to see this crypt of Paris's past.

It reminds me that our past is a part of today.  Our ancestors have paved the way for us to be what we are today.  We must learn from their successes, learn from their failures, and take those lessons to build our present.  I am grateful for the struggles and accomplishments that my ancestors.  I am grateful for all they have made possible for me today.I hope that we all can build upon our past in a way that would please our ancestors and allows them to know that we cherish all that they have made possible.

How do you build about the past to make a better future?
