Je Suis Charlie (I am Charlie Too...)

If freedom of speech is taken away, then dumb and silent we may be led, like sheep to the slaughter.

When those that wish to oppress the power of free speech act out violently, and without mercy, they solidify that the pen is indeed mightier than the sword. Fear does not silence the unalienable right and belief of free speech, it emboldens it. Too many nations have been through too many fights, bled too much blood, and loss too much life for us to lose our freedom of speech now or ever because a single group or a nation is offended. If my words have the ability to offend you, anger you, or move you then I have done my job well. If we ever live to see a world where everything we read is completely censored and politically correct, then know on this day that the right to our freedom of speech is finally dead. 

I want to send over my deepest condolences for those that lost their lives today (1/7/2015) in the terrorist attacks at the Charlie Hebdo office in Paris France.

"Today we are all Charlie too."
