« L'amour est plus fort que la haine. »
["Love is stronger than hate."]
~ Stéphane « Charb » Charbonnier (d. January 7, 2015)
Illustrator & Editor-in-chief of Charlie Hebdo

The terrorist attack in Paris this week was a tragedy, not only for the people of France, but for all those who value freedom. Regardless of political, religious, or cultural beliefs, freedom of expression is a right that generations of citizens in both of our great countries fought and died to gain and defend.  I send love and prayers for peace to Paris and all of my friends in France. Nous sommes tous Charlie.
