    Happy national day to all.

    14th July is a national holiday in France in commemoration of the storming of the Bastille in 1789, a defining moment in the revolution that followed, leading to the formation of the French republic.

    In honor of your national holiday, I would support statues to Gilbert du Motier, Marquis de Lafayette, who played such an important part of our revolution and was a notable survivor and contributor in France through the turmoil there.
