Today the world mourns with France. Speak up and speak out against fanaticism everywhere in the world. Pick up your “pen”. Share your words and images. #jesuischarlie
To be more informed about Charlie Hebdo, here’s an excellent article from The Guardian. The magazine will publish one million copies next week.
The hashtag #JesuisAhmed refers to Ahmed Merabet, the police officer cold-bloodedly killed as he lay injured on the sidewalk. Click here to read the Mail Online article. Such loss and sadness … for nothing.

My heart, thoughts, and prayers go out to all those affected by this terrible tragedy to our brothers and sisters in France. Such a sad day.
This was so horrible. I don’t know how it’s in their mind that Allah is okay with this.
Thank you for sharing. I’ll have a look.
Merci, Patricia. I hesitated before blogging about this violent act, but ultimately did as well, figuring that silence was not always the best option.

I feel immense compassion for all the victims of this horrific attack and immense outrage that free speech, satire — humor(!), was the target. Shortly after this massacre was reported in the NY Times I read a comment from someone who suggested that people from all over the world should pay to subscribe to Charlie Hebdo to show that free speech is a force that will not be stopped.

Je suis Charlie aussi. This has been on my mind so much the last few days. Freedom of Speech must never be quelled.
