Je Suis Charlie

I post this as an opportunity to recognise the dreadful and awful attack on a free press and freedom of speech that took place yesterday in Paris.

 

We all happily post here and no doubt elsewhere, thinking little of this fundamental freedom we exercise daily. Alas, 25 years after the fall of the Berlin Wall and 70 years after the defeat of Nazism those that would resort to violence in the name of their beliefs murder in cold blood those that don't share them.

 

I ask that you pray to your god, whomsoever they may be, for those that lost their lives in the name of freedom yesterday.

    I snapped this photo just now in front of my office.  This gentleman is a local French American.  The reference is to an Turkish-Armenian journalist who was assasinated for his journalism in Turkey in 2007.  At his funeral, thousands of mourners chanted, "We are Hrant Dink."
