David Pope Said It Best


12 people have been killed in an attack on the offices of a French satirical magazine – Charlie Hebdo – situated in Paris. The attack was allegedly carried out by militant Islamist intend on avenging the Prophet Muhammad.

Amongst the dead are editor Stephanie Charbonnier, as well as cartoonists Cabu, Wolinski and Tignous, as well as French economist and Charlie Hebdo contributor Bernard Marris.

The Canberra Times’ political cartoonist David Pope tweeted the above image to show solidarity in compassion with the victims. His cartoon, in my eyes at least, is a through provoking tribute.

Like Pope and so many others, my thoughts and prayers go with the victims of this horrifying attack, as well as their families and friends.
