Charlie Hebdo’s Martyrs
Above all, I'm a journalist, and my heart is with the families of those Charlie Hebdomadaire's cartoonists who died because they dared to express their freedom. I first read Charlie Hebdo in 1975, to practice my French and have some fun.
This already timed cover of the paper reads: "Charia Hebdo", 100 lashes if you don't die of laughing. They also made jokes with the Pope, Rabbis, and other religious leaders. So what? If there's just one God (and otherwise we'd have a war of gods), whose is the real McCoy?
The real one is within your heart, if you do believe in gods; if not, it's in your conscience. This last one reads: Love is stronger than hatred.
