Mourir d’aimer (to die of love): Charles Aznavour


Les parois de ma vie sont lisses
Je m’y accroche mais je glisse
Lentement vers ma destinée:
Mourir d’aimer

Tandis que le monde me juge
Je ne vois pour moi qu’un refuge
Toutes issues m’étant condamnées:
Mourir d’aimer

Mourir d’aimer
De plein gré s’enfoncer dans la nuit
Payer l’amour au prix de sa vie
Pêcher contre le corps mais non contre l’esprit

Laissant le monde à ses problèmes
Les gens haineux face à eux-mêmes
Avec leurs petites idées:
Mourir d’aimer

Puisque notre amour ne peut vivre
Mieux vaut en refermer le livre
Et plutôt que de le brûler:
Mourir d’aimer

Partir en redressant la tête
Sortir vainqueur d’une défaite
Renverser toutes les données:
Mourir d’aimer

Mourir d’aimer
Comme on le peut de n’importe quoi
Abandonner tout derrière soi
Pour n’emporter que ce qui fut nous, qui fut toi

Tu es le printemps, moi l’automne
Ton coeur se prend, le mien se donne
Et ma route est déjà tracée:
Mourir d’aimer,
Mourir d’aimer,
Mourir d’aimer.

They came from all over, tens of thousands of demonstrators from around the world, protesting the economic and moral pitfalls of globalization. Our mission as members of the Seattle Police Department? To safeguard people and property—in that order. Things went well the first day. We were praised for our friendliness and restraint—though some politicians were apoplectic at our refusal to make mass arrests for the actions of a few.

Then came day two. Early in the morning, large contingents of demonstrators began to converge at a key downtown intersection. They sat down and refused to budge. Their numbers grew. A labor march would soon add additional thousands to the mix.

“We have to clear the intersection,” said the field commander. “We have to clear the intersection,” the operations commander agreed, from his bunker in the Public Safety Building. Standing alone on the edge of the crowd, I, the chief of police, said to myself, “We have to clear the intersection.”

Why?

Because of all the what-ifs. What if a fire breaks out in the Sheraton across the street? What if a woman goes into labor on the seventeenth floor of the hotel? What if a heart patient goes into cardiac arrest in the high-rise on the corner? What if there’s a stabbing, a shooting, a serious-injury traffic accident? How would an aid car, fire engine or police cruiser get through that sea of people? The cop in me supported the decision to clear the intersection. But the chief in me should have vetoed it. And he certainly should have forbidden the indiscriminate use of tear gas to accomplish it, no matter how many warnings we barked through the bullhorn.

It is interesting to revisit, the statements made by the official in charge of riot suppression, in the light of the US Davis campus abuse of children rights to petition for social, political and economical justice in the United States, rights not only violated, but to which there are no dialogue, concessions, discussion, as if we, the citizens are not represented by anybody. The actions of the Campus police of the Uc Davis, is clear declaration of the mindset of the officials regarding the petition for justice.
