 The Sun is shining. School is back after summer break. It’s primary school days in 1988. Is it the year when the most studious classmate, Claire (a White girl from France), is excited to share the future arrival of her baby sister/brother? She is so excited about it, we all temporarily forget that she always has the top marks in class and she doesn’t waste her time talking with “peasants”. The fascination for how she was achieving to always get 20/20 or 19/20 on her bad days was real. She was not a talkative girl. She had that “Pharaoh” glow for always being the first in every subjects. So by the time she came to school crying, and temporarily scoring between 15/20 and 18/20, her Mom had experienced a miscarriage. And out was her hope of being a big sister. It was our first collective tragedy at school. It was the time around this #MotownZouk song – begging someone to not exercise their power to destroy you mentally. Zouk really express the vulnerabilities of LOVE. The passionate one.
