(nearly) Wordless Wednesday

Today is the seventy-fourth birthday of the Dionne quintuplets, of Ontario, Canada: Cecile, Emilie, Marie, Yvonne and Annette. Although the girls were world-famous for many years, their lives were marked by tragedy and misery owing from abuses by their family and their government caretakers. Annette and Cecile, the surviving quints, prefer to be called the Dionne sisters.

I hope their remaining years bring them the peace that they were denied when they were younger. Their story resonates very deeply with me, and I'm so glad you shared this today. Bonne-fete!

I've posted my Wordless Wednesday contribution here - - and hope you can drop by and say hi. It's always great to meet new folks this way.

Hope you have a wonderful rest-of-WW!
