Solidarity, Peace, and Hope in Paris. Nous Sommes Tous Charlie.

by Erica Berman

Nous sommes tous Charlie manifestation at Place de la Republique Paris

Je suis Charlie. Paris. Place de la Republique. Nous sommes tous Charlie.

Je suis Charlie. Paris. Place de la Republique 11 January, 2015. Nous sommes tous Charlie.

Paris. We love you and our hearts are heavy for you. What happened at Charlie Hebdo will be with us forever. The families, colleagues, and victims are in our thoughts and prayers. There is the promise that we can use this momentum of hope to move forward and make us all better people, this world a better place. A world where freedom of expression prevails. Everywhere.

Je suis Charlie. Paris. Place de la Republique 11 January, 2015. Nous sommes tous Charlie.

Close to four million people took to the streets throughout France yesterday, and upwards of two million in Paris alone, in solidarity and support. An unprecedented number. Around the world people gathered to share, pray, and dream. We are all Charlie. We will not forget.

Je Suis Charlie.
What is it about this that hurts so much? I believe it stems from having them attack cartoonists and artists vs. politicians or corporations. When people try to suppress writers and artists, by whatever means, it should set off major alarms.

Je suis Charlie.

My heart is heavy with the thought that so many people hate so fiercely .
