It’s All Maya!

If Life is an illusion, then why do I keep banging my head against the wall?

Si la Vie est une illusion, pourquoi je n'arrête pas de me taper la tête sur les murs?

Nous Sommes Charlie

This was going to be my Happy New Year post, but what happened in Paris yesterday concerns all of us who enjoy freedom of speech no matter where we are in the world.  I think Canadian columnist Mark Steyn said it best when he was talking about the weekly newspaper Charlie Hebdo:

“Charlie Hebdo was ‘forced to bear a burden’ that other, more prominent outlets should have shared.

Yes, they were very brave. This was the only publication that was willing to publish the Muhammad — the Danish Muhammad cartoons in 2006 because they decided to stand by those Danish cartoonists. I’m proud to have written for the only Canadian magazine to publish those Muhammad cartoons. And it’s because The New York Times didn’t and because Le Monde in Paris didn’t, and the London Times didn’t and all the other great newspapers of the world didn’t – only Charlie Hebdo and my magazine in Canada and a few others did. But they were forced to bear a burden that should have been more widely dispersed…

We will be retreating into a lot more self-censorship if the pansified Western media doesn’t man up and decide to disburse the risk so they can’t kill one small, little French satirical magazine. They’ve gotta kill all of us.”

Maya Muses:  Let’s see if newspapers around the world will unite and fight against these radical terrorists and show their solidarity.  If they do, the terrorists lose, because as Mr. Steyn said, “They’ve gotta kill all of us.”

2015 has not begun as many had hoped, but perhaps uniting together, something positive can result from the madness that has taken over this world.

    So true. It’s extremely important to stay united. This technique is used in the animal world against its predators.

    France and many of its allies showed the world that when it counts, we are united.

    I have been thinking about all of my friends who live in Paris. What a traumatic experience for the city of Paris and all of France and truly for the entire world. It was good to see so many people united at the rally. I was very disappointed that Pres Obama was not there. He could have at least sent a high ranking US official to join with the other world leaders.

    I think you’re right, Harriet. Patrick commented on this as well, but to be honest with you, there was so much going on, not many French people noticed that Obama didn’t send someone over from his administration. When he finally did send Kerry, it was too little, too late and made the American absence that much more noticeable. Still, not much was said except for a few seconds on the news about Kerry coming to give his support afterwards.
