Élise Rivet was the Mother Superior at the convent of “Notre Dame de Compassion”, where she not only hid refugees from the gestapo, but also used the convent to stash some weapons & ammunition for the resistance. She was eventually caught in March of 1944 & sentenced to hard labor at Ravensbrück concentration camp. About a year later, Élise was murdered along with thousands of others just weeks before the war ended. She volunteered to go into the gas chamber in the place of a mother.

I don't know if Diane Keaton is as interesting as she seems or as beautiful as she appears, but I would love to have cocktails and dinner with her to find out for myself.

Have you ever seen such a stunning picture of a true Man? Beauty, strength, wisdom and above all fiercely proud of his heritage. I would have loved to have talked with him. Three Eagles, a Nez Perce Warrior. It was taken in 1910 by Edward S. Curtis.
