“Mama! Mama! Look I am killing the lions!”

Marie smiled and waved at her young son as he wielded a stick like a sword. She had taken him yesterday to see  L’Amphithéâtre des Trois Gauls. After a brief history lesson, his imagination took over.

She had saved her money from two jobs to take this trip to Lyon.

After her boyfriend left before the boy was born, she had felt like those martyrs of old.

Smiling through her tears at her son, she knew it was all worth it. He would grow up to be a strong man like his ancestors.
