Unlocking Love

Locked-in Syndrome

I can’t believe it, but the Pont des Arts Bridge in Paris is being taken down! If you don’t know this bridge, it’s a small bridge in Paris reaching across the Seine River. It holds the thousands of love locks placed on the bridge’s walls by lovers for years. 

Today, so many locks have been locked onto the bridge that it is beginning to way down the bridge and affect its structure. So, they have to take off the panels that hold the locks! This is so sad! 

But, there’s good news! One man, Le Cléateur, with a bunch of keys has started unlocking the locks, removing them from the panels and reuniting their owners!  I would be so devastated if I had a lock on that bridge and they took it down. He has removed about 400 locks so far, and while I don’t think he’ll get them all, I really hope he does!

Tell me who you would share a lock with on the bridge on Twitter @MackenzieBlue using the hashtags #ZeesLoveLocks #MissysMoments #AroundTheWorld #ZeesNews
