One week from today, the French cast their vote in the #Macron/#LePen run-off. And one week ago, @cosima_gill and I took our journo-road trip through France to find out what people are expecting, what they need from politics and what their hopes are for the #future.
Everyone we spoke to was willing to talk back to us, about politics and politicians - even those who were let down and frustrated. Even those voters who told us they were undecided. And even those citizens who said they would abstain from voting for anyone at all.
That's an important conclusion the two of us arrived at after our trip. We also noted that when asked about their one big wish/hope for France (as stated in black on these signs, in German for @rtlaktuell), their answers were based on the big values. Peace and peace of mind, change, growth. The kind of wish people also hold for themselves, personally.
