Bastille Day memorialized in France
AP: Bastille Day in France was celebrated Saturday with a parade in Paris, overseen by military jets trailing the colors of the French flag.
The parade ended with paratroopers landing on the Champs-Elysees in front of new French president, Francois Hollande.
“Bastille Day marks the July 14, 1789, storming of the Bastille prison by angry Paris crowds that helped spark the French Revolution.”

I wish our Independence Day Celebrations were this blatantly patriotic.
