On this day 17 years ago, Princess Diana died in a car accident in Paris.
We were both in high school at the time and hearing the news is still as clear as day in our heads.
Here we are 17 years on walking the streets of Paris oblivious to the significance of today until we came across “The Flame of Liberty”, which is located just above the tunnel where the accident happened.
The Flame of Liberty is a full-sized replica of the one held by the Statue of Liberty in New York City. And is now an unofficial memorial for Princess Diana.
