NICE, FRANCE, JULY 16, 2016: Newlyweds lay flowers on the pavement at the Promenade des Anglais, as a tribute to the victims of the deadly terror attack of July 14. Tunisian Mohamed Lahouaiej-Bouhlel, 31, drove a 19-tonne truck into a packed crowd of people who had just watched a fireworks display in celebration of Bastille Day. 84 people were killed, including 10 children. Hundreds were injured. ***** Before us great Death stands/Our fate held close within his quiet hands./When with proud joy we lift Life’s red wine/To drink deep of the mystic shining cup/And ecstasy through all our being leaps— Death bows his head and weeps. -– Rainer Maria Rilke
