François Mitterrand

Image result for Dying Without God : Francois Mitterrand's Meditations on Living and Dying

The original title would have been directly translated as: <The old man and death>. Mitterrand (died 1996) was French President for 14 years. (The term was 7 years each).

He read alot; and had many women in his life. History was a constant theme between the journalist author and the cancer stricken president. (Look at his face… to see cancer waste him away brings one sadness and sorrow…)

One is reminded of how small each individual is… perhaps not even a footnote in history…

And only in acknowledging death can we truly live…
