I was saddened to learn of the murder of
ten twelve members (and 5 wounded) of the staff at Charlie Hebdo, a french satire magazine. As I understand, 2 men armed with machine guns entered their building and began shooting indiscriminately. At this point, it is believed that the assailants were Muslim extremists who were offended by the magazine’s satirical look at Mohammed.
When will extremists learn that you can not kill an idea?
My prayers go out to the families of the victims of this vile act.
