This morning after reading this sentence, a special feeling came over me, for the first time, in my whole life, as far as I can remember. I felt sad not to be able to speak the language of my ancestors, the ones before the Romans invaded France. The French language spoken today has been greatly influence by the presence of Romans in Gaul. For some reason I felt sad and hurt about this.
This kind of feeling in a fallen environment would cause resentment, anger, and possibly could lead to acts of violence and wars. However, I did not feel such feelings. I simply was sad and regretted not knowing the original languages of my ancestors.
