Je ne regrette rien

Tonight a very nice end to the Easter holiday . Went to see the movie " La Vie en Rose" about
Edith Piaf. The ending was very dramatic . Here is Piaf, with severe arthritis , chronic pain from a car accident, a drug and alcohol addict . She shuffles on stage for her very last performance .
You wonder what this frail little sickly lady is going to sing and then suddenly she belts out
" Je ne regrette rien ", I have no regrets. Very powerful, very moving .
If I could be half of what that woman was, I would really be something.

So hears to you Edith , God bless you on this Easter Sunday . Merci
