Today’s events in Paris were barbaric and horrific. It’s incredible to me that people could somehow think that they could silence freedom of speech based on some twisted ideology. I feel that they completely failed in what they tried to do. Instead of silencing freedom of speech, freedom of speech has silenced them. Charlie Hebdo will go on and continue doing what it’s done since 1970. It’s important for publications such as CH to exist; what they do is something that many of us take for granted and must protect at all cost. I applaud France and its citizens for standing up to this cowardly act today. I did this drawing tonight as my way of showing my solidarity with them.
