The irony of those extremists who shot up Charlie Hebdo is that they’re actually doing a complete disservice to the holy influence they claim to be inspired by and ultimately themselves. Shooting unarmed people unexpectedly is the most cowardly and unholy thing someone can do.
Where is the dignity? Where is the humanity? Where is the honor?
As those shooters scramble through France to escape, the consequences of their actions are already evident. The kind of minds that are capable of those killings don’t experience peace. They’re scrambled and tormented.
Meanwhile, the demonstrations of solidarity through the streets of Paris for those shot makes one thing very clear: cowardly shootings will not stop the freedom of the press or the spirit of those people who support it.
The pen is and will always be mightier than the sword.
