«I was raised in Breton by my parents. I belong to this generation that was able to speak this language, without shame, at home and in the schoolyard. Who did not have to be ashamed of its regional bilingualism nor of its roots. A generation, however, that continues to feel the weight of the shame passed on to our grandparents.
