‘Imagine’ sets the mood in Paris, around the world
Tuesday, Jan. 20, 2015 — Even though the number of casualties is much, much lower, and the effects of the two events are at completely different ends of the scale, the recent terrorist attacks in Paris will live in infamy forever right alongside the events of Sept. 11, 2001 in our country. I will never understand such acts of violence, and I can find no cause in heaven or on earth great enough to justify these cold-blooded murders.
In response, more than a million people participated in the Jan. 11 march through Paris — including many world leaders — professing their support of free speech and their refusal to submit to the killers. That’s encouraging.
