I AM CHARLIE-JE SUIS CHARLIE

Fall snow fall, Over the moaning Paris’ ground, Let your descending snowflakes a Healing blanket for the city To weave And Charlie’s slaughtered cartoonists To enshroud! © Demetrios Trifiatis 09 JANUARY 2015 PARIS (Reuters) - Twelve people including two police officers were killed in a shooting at the Paris offices of the satirical weekly Charlie Hebdo on Wednesday, a police spokesman said in an update on the death toll.

Afraid I am that you are right! I also believe this is the tip of the iceberg only. Hope humanity shows maturity and learn from past mistakes. Fanaticism should be eradicated, no matter where it comes from! Thank you dear, Eileen, for your comment. The world should smile, as you do!

A tragedy my friend. I have family living in Paris. Uncles, Aunts and first cousins as well as their children. A huge clan both on my mothers and fathers side. A stunning Epigram!

Yes, Eve, it is strange! They said they wanted to pass a message to the authorities and they were in need of someone to deliver it! Thank you!

This is a very fitting epigram, Demi. It makes no sense to brutally kill the innocent in the name of God! #7 // paul
