Terrorists attacked the Paris headquarters of satirical newspaper Charlie Hebdo earlier today. 12 people are known dead with a few more currently in critical condition. While details are sketchy and the attackers are still on the loose, it seems certain that this was in retaliation for the paper mocking Islam and printing multiple Mohammad cartoons. This is tragic and incredibly stupid. How anyone thinks that someone putting pen and pencil to paper should be met with violence is beyond me.
How does one respond to such inanity? To me, a perfect response would be for every newspaper in the free world to pick a day and, as a sign of unity, print one of the Charlie Hebdo cartoons. This one is my favorite:
“Love is stronger than hate”
