Pen mightier than sword or gun

Cartoonists across the world have  respounded in solidarity with these killed in Paris:

Cartoonists around the world have put pencil to paper in solidarity with the Charlie Hebdo artists slaughtered in Paris, admitting their own fear of being targeted but vowing they will not be silenced.

In the small world of political satire, many cartoonists knew the journalists at the French weekly magazine who were among 12 killed by suspected Islamists on Wednesday. They expressed their anguish and deep anger at the killings in the way they know best. . .

They are showing the pen is mightier than the sword or gun.

The gunmen showed the weakness of their beliefs by responding to words and pictures with guns.

They couldn’t counter the message so shot the messengers.
