We log on and sound off, blissfully unaware words have consequences.

Others suffer and die for speaking out

Against leaders

Against cartels

Against inequality

Have we forgotten the Arab Spring?

Censors are cowards living in fear of ideas other than their own.

And when threats aren’t enough . . .

We Are CharlieWe are Charlie Hebdo

At least, until we don’t

Until we forget that words have power

Until we must decide whether we want freedom or safety, responsibility or comfort, liberty or servitude
