It’s been three years since I’ve started this “journey”. Although I’ve been writing on websites for three years now, the amount of content I post has only just recently exploded. I’d just like to thank some of the people that have been reading my stuff for a while now. Robert Horvat, Sean Munger, Ken Lohatepanont, Elliot Declet, Michael Andoscia, and Blog Liberally have earned these spots!
On January 7th, 2015, a mass shooting of the satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo office in Paris, carried out by two Islamist gunmen who identified themselves as radical Al-Qaeda members from Yemen. These two men, brothers by the names of Saïd and Chérif Kouachi, along with a third gunman and close friend by the name of Amedy Coulibaly, were responsible for the largest terror attack in France since the June 1961 Vitry-Le-François train bombing which killed twenty-eight and injured 100+. The saddening fact is the Charlie Hebdo shootings weren’t going to be the most deadly attack on French soil in 2015.
