Charlie Hebdo.

A satirical magazine old enough to have covered the French Revolution.
It was firebombed in 2011 due to a cartoon featuring Muhammad.
Recently, two men with machine guns ran in and mowed down a number of the staff - of course, 
another example of religiously-based violence perpetrated by intellectual cowards.
These journalists died for freedom of expression. 
Remember that people unjustly die over this all the time.

And please remember to love and support those that live for freedom and open discussion. 

We will need it for the future that one day buries all the religious barbarism of the past.
