Tribute: Charlie Hebdo
This article is a slightly more emotional addition to TheSprout, but I felt that it was necessary.
Almost all of you will be aware of the horrendous events that happened in Paris recently.
Gunmen jumped out of a car and mindlessly gunned down 12 people in an editorial meeting for the magazine Charlie Hebdo. A police officer was also shot, even when he asked for mercy. Then, there was a siege of a supermarket, which resulted in a full-scale raid of the shop. Both events were ruthless and heartless and resulted in the death of 17 people.
The events have sparked a feeling of unity right the way through France and the world. The saying "The pen is mightier than the sword" has taken on even greater meaning.
Also, a hashtag is going around social media: #jesuischarlie. This literally means 'I am Charlie'. I urge you to hashtag this to show your support for all the victims and to support the unity, which is needed so much right-now - right throughout the world.
'The pen is mightier than the sword'
