Moi aussi je suis Charlie
Shoot, cannot speak a word of French, except for Franglais, I took latin (for my sins)
Thus is in response to the terrorist attack in Paris yesterday - "Charlie Hebdo" is a satirical magazine, kind of like Mad or The Onion used to be, and its choices of targets for its humor are quite wide-ranging. The 12 victims were eight journalists; two police; a visitor and a maintenance worker. "Je suis Charlie" means "I am Charlie," and it is appearing on signs, placards, store windows, public buildings, etc all over France and in many other countries. John Kerry gave a ringing statement of solidarity, made more pointed by being delivered in French as well as in English.
So sad, thanks for this post

This is so painful. I will find JKerry's remarks. They have a hostage this am.
The Jewish community here have had to step up their security, we really are in a guerrilla war.
