Je suis Charlie et Ahmed

Charlie in Vitual Paris

The masthead of this blog will be dark for one week, in remembrance of the events at Charlie Hebdo‘s offices in Paris, and those who lost their lives there and elsewhere.  I understand the intense displeasure many Muslims have toward such depictions of Muhammad; but what the shooters did was so far out of proportion as to enter the realm of stupidity.  The shooters, by their acts, did not help their cause, did not do honor to the Prophet’s name or teachings, and wrought a great harm to Islam in general.

=====

Lord, we ask you to guide the people of this land, and of all the nations, in the
ways of justice and peace; that we may honor one another
and serve the common good.

Lord, in your mercy
Hear our prayer.
