Liberté, égalité, fraternité. We won’t back down.

November 14, 2015 32 comments

It all started like a normal Saturday morning. Going to the kitchen with sleepy eyes, picking up my cell phone to check messages and discovering not one but two worried tweets, checking on me. Thanks for your messages, Brian and Nino. Not sleepy anymore, I thought “Fuck, what happened again” and rushed to the radio and the website of Le Monde.

And then the horror. Again. To these pieces of shit who think they will make us change our way of life, I say: “We won’t back down”.

I’ll end this sad post with a quote reminding us what religion should be:

And if you would know God, be not therefore a solver of riddles.

Rather look about you and you shall see Him playing with your children.

And look into space; you shall see Him walking in the cloud, outstretching His arms in the lightning and descending in rain.

You shall see Him smiling in flowers, then rising and waving His hands in trees.

Khalil Gibran, The Prophet

You won’t see Him put bombs to kill innocent people.
