A Charlie Hebdo cartoonist drew after the second Paris terror attack in a year - with the images (found on the link posted below) came the following quotes.""Terrorism is not the enemy. Terrorism is a mode of operation. Repeating 'we are at war' without finding the courage to name our enemies leads nowhere. Our enemies are those that love death. In various guises, they have always existed. History forgets quickly."
'The people who died tonight were out living, drinking, singing. They didn't know they had declared war'
"Instead of dividing, we should remember what is precious: our way of life."
"Lovers of death, if God exists, he hated you. And you have already lost, both on earth and in heaven."

Remember something, the death, the killing, the forcing of agenda terror and fear on the mass population, has been with the aftermath a rise of heavily armed police.
Remember something else - Charlie Hebdo was a target for murder too - a message was given not to communicate a truth, whether an actual truth, a fact, a personal truth, a truth of living in a world with terror threats and war. God did not give us minds, hearts and reasoning ability to be silent. Speaking out sometimes makes people think.
Before I continue, I am going to share a link and encourage you to look at this. This is the death statistics that are recorded from war over the years. Magnify this with cancer and other terminal illnesses, then there are the car, rail and plane crashes too.
When people choose to value life, liberty and love, valuing every day of their life, knowing it is very precious, WHAT RIGHT HAS ANYONE GOT TO DENY ANYONE THIS?
It is a fundamental human right to express your truth, whether you be hurting or not, frightened or not, happy or not, sad or not, love or not, even anger but please do this in a most responsible way. There is help available for people who need this. Behind the most angry person, might be unresolved pain. The lust for power is something else. And actually there is no one who has the right to have power over anyone....
While reactions take place in our world, those who choose to continue to live with love and hope in their hearts - with faith or no faith, is their choice, Paris or not.
There are people who do not value intelligent people who in their learning process have been required to examine different perspectives of what is presented. The oppression of intelligent people who include architects, engineer and pioneers will not work.
Paris is one of the most romantic cities in the world. It is a place where lovers walk and talk together - people communicate together. We can all learn from this.
Peace be with you
