Today is the 211th birthday of Victor Hugo, born February 26, 1802. Hugo was widely regarded as the premiere French romantic writer of his time.
Perhaps his most well-known and beloved creation is Les Miserables, which continues to touch our hearts. Who can resist the story of Jean Valjean? Who can deny the impact of this tale of courage, sacrifice, and redemption? Who has not been moved by the music inspired by this story?
So, for today, I am grateful for the genius of Victor Hugo.
