When words do fail…


Yesterday, November 13, 2015, France suffered an unbelievably horrific attack. We all know that our beloved Sherlock Holmes has French roots, and there are robust scions and fan groups in France. Our hearts are broken over these hideous events. Thank goodness, our comrades at  are well, at least physically. For that, we are so grateful.

Last night, this list of organizations and agencies was posted on I believe that all of these are fully legitimate and they have boots on the ground in France. As I learn more, I will update this list:

Donate to Doctors Without Borders

Donate to the French Red Cross (in French)

Donate to Restaurants du Cœur, which provides food to those in need (in French)

Donate to Secours Populaire Français, an aid organization

Donate to Solidarités International, an aid organization

Everyone, be well and stay safe. We are going to have our little Tweetalong tomorrow (11/15/2015) to hopefully give everyone something fun and entertaining to do. A little Holmesian diversion might be quite nice right now.
