Charlie Hebdo
Imagine sitting in your office for the french magazine called Charlie Hebdo. A meeting is occurring, you're sharing your thoughts, opinions, and ideas. A man with a mask walks in, dressed in all black with a gun pointing straight at you and your co-workers. You can only think the worst, you're going to get killed. First, the gunman shoots your fellow friend that edits the paper. Then 2 of your co-workers. You're next. All thats going through your mind is why is this happening? The bullet is coming towards you as you take one last breath.

“This is a terrorist attack, there is no doubt about it." said the president, Fran├žois Hollande. at least 12 people are dead after three hooded gunmen armed with Kalashnikovs attacked the headquarters of a French satirical magazine and opened fire on journalists and police guards. The death toll includes 10 journalists and two police officers. The website stated these facts.

The victims who were killed to a stand for their career. Charlie Hebdo has the right to the freedom of speech. They were allowed to create cartoons, but it still upset the gunmen. Does this mean freedom of speech can result in your death?

In conclusion, Charlie Hebdo produced a cartoon angering some viewers. Two of the viewers decided to make a statement and say that the cartoon was making fun of people. Some people are with the attack and some people are against it. But the first amendment states everyone has the freedom of speech. How do you feel about the attack? Do you think Charlie Hebdo had the right to create a cartoon that is making fun of people?
