Escape from Tuileries Palace.

As they slept together, Marie again took Melanie back in time.

“Louis pensait que nous pouvions échapper à nos captifs et retrouver notre famille à Vienne." Marie said sadly.

{“Louis believed we could escape our captives and make our way to my family in Vienna.”} Marie said sadly.


“C'était dans la nuit du 20 juin 1791, lorsque nous avons tenté de nous échapper, mais essayez comme nous pourrions être capturés à Varennes et ramenés aux Tuileries.

Vous m'avez dit dans votre lettre à ma sœur qu'il n'était pas possible de changer notre avenir.

Mais le changement nous devions essayer.

Dans votre monde, l'esclavage et le choix de choisir sont-ils maintenant arrivés?”

{“It was on the night of June 20th 1791 when we attempted our escape, but try as we might we were captured at Varennes and taken back to the Tuileries.

You did tell me in your letter my sister that it was not possible to change our future.

But change we needed to try.

In your world has slavery and a choice to choose now arrived?”}

“Non.” replied Melanie

{“No.”} replied Melanie

“Beaucoup sont encore enchaînés sans espoir Marie. Beaucoup comme vous souffrent toujours du manque de choix pour choisir leur avenir.

Mais il y a un mouvement croissant de changement pour donner à plus de gens l'espoir de changer d'esclavage. "

{“Many are still in chains without hope Marie. Many as you, still suffer the lack of ‘choice to choose’ their future.

But there is a growing movement for change to give more people hope to change from slavery.”}

Change will come!
