In a day of modern technology and terror, we live a life of many dualities.
We wait for the moments of tragedy to strike upon us.
We wait for the moment it may happen to others.
We process the worlds’ suffering through the veins of social media.
Paris and France’s news of yesterday is tragic and frightening. Not only because of the horror behind the scene but rather, the fear of the silenced outlet of the pen which may follow.
I’ll never forget thinking how brave and incredible the radical journalists of the French Revolution were with their pamphlets and newsletters. Charlie Hebdo, your team, and those such as Jean-Paul-Marat who have been executed for speaking your minds and questioning the systems MUST continue to inspire the spoken word!
Oh sweet history. How you repeat yourself…
Here is a collection of some of my favorite voices that have spoken for Charlie Hebdo over the past couple of days. Long live the pen! Viva la FUCKING FRANCE!!

We are all Charlie!
