Terror Can Be Anywhere
Je Suis Charlie! I am Charlie! These words reflect the signs and voices heard around the world following the January 7, 2015 terror attack at the satirical paper in Paris, France. Many people strongly sympathize with the writers at Charlie Hebdo and hold fast to their freedom. They are together in anger and defiance. The rallying cry, “I am Charlie”, shows unabashed support of the newspaper and freedom of speech. ‘Being Charlie’ holds other meaning too, and gender plays a significant role.
