{ Sunday Soliloquy } Je Suis Charlie

posted in: Personal, Sunday Soliloquy | 1

[ so·lil·o·quy – the act of speaking one’s thoughts aloud when by oneself or regardless of any hearers ]

The world is a hard place to live in sometimes. 

I will never understand the ability of some human beings to be so absolutely abhorrent.

A bloody massacre at the offices of satirical publication Charlie Hebdo, several more shootings in other places, hostage situations, and so many families devastated by the actions of a small number of extremists.

The attacks appear to be aimed at the very idea of free speech, something which humans have been driven to achieve for centuries. Something which I hope will never be quashed.

I join the rest of Europe and the World with my prayers for those affected by these murders; for all those who have lost loved ones, have damaged property, and are now scared to go about their business.

I leave you with one of my favourite cartoon responses to the events of Thursday.


Je Suis Charlie.
