Je Suis Charlie.

Updated on January 9, 2015

Whats Next?

two days ago the terrorist committed a sin

stand up together,they can't ever win.

killing innocent people who spoke out loud

happy with their work,extremely proud.

killied in cold blood,a cowardly act

they should rot in prison,this is a fact.

gave the people no chance,no defence at all

stood and mocked as the people did fall.

extremism has no place in a civilised world

their lies and sins are soon to be unfurled.

what goes through their minds to be poisoned in this way

then they ask for forgiveness from their God when they pray.

governments need to tackle the poison at its core

its time we had a chance to level the score.

these people and others before cant die in vain

the world as a whole will feel the pain.

as I write these words ,I watch the news

they have taken hostages,the media form queues.

watching the chase live ,as the Police hunt these men

i hope it ends bad for them,these people are not real men.

take the cowards way out to promote their views

given lots of coverage on the daily news.

an ongoing chase,lives devastated and ended

a awful end to a life,their views can't be defended.

hope they get caught,and answer for their crimes

we are going through a world in changing times.

more threats on Britain today, MI5 have stated

its gone on long enough,their motives are dated.

wont be taken seriously,won't be given a voice

they made their own path,gave the public no choice.

sealed their own fate,ended with no glory

thats all I will remember about their insane and sad story.


More Reason to Stand Up.

After what happened two days ago,there's even more reason to stand up to these people.cowards use religion and twist the words of their religious doctrine for their own evil and heinous agenda.its almost an everyday occurrence in the news ,of more slaughter and senseless murders.there is no religion that preaches killing as a solution to a problem.we might all be ATTATCHED to different religions,but we are all in agreement that ,there's no justification for killing innocent people just because they decided to have an opinion.i dont always like what I read or see on TV,or what people might say,but I don't kill just because someones opinion differs from mine.freedom of speech is a fundamental right of every free person in the civilised world and beyond.these (people)who perpetrated this act of barbarism need to realise that no one will be silenced by what ever they decide to do.you can't keep every voice quiet,there's always one man willing to take a stand to tyranny.

Je Suis Charlie

Never Give Up,never Give In.

NEVER GIVE UP,NEVER GIVE IN

IF WE DO,THE TERRORISTS WILL WIN

NEVER STAND DOWN,NEVER DULL YOUR SPEECH

THESE ARE THE RULES WE ALL CAN PREACH.

TAKE A STAND,AND FIGHT THIS CURSE

IF WE DONT IT WILL ONLY GET WORSE.

If We Dont Have Freedom,we Have Nothing.

How Many More?

How many innocent people have died in the last ten years in the name of religion?

How many more will die before we rid ourselves of this scurge on society?.

When will we make an example of these people when caught?

They shout about their rights when caught,they deserve no rights?

What happened to the victims,where were their Rights before being killed?

They should be executed in the same way they executed their victims?

Whats the correct way to deal with these killers?

Do the victims family get a say in the outcome?

How long do we need to suffer thsee acts of terrorism?

They won't surrender,their intention is to die?

Publically show their execution by Police,controversial?

The Police officer executed on TV that day by terrorists,we showed that?


End in Sight?

is there an end in sight?

do we continue with the fight?

another tragedy on TV !

how many more will we see?

will we ever see good news?

some incontrovertible views?

something pleasing to the eye?

not something that makes us cry?

will we see the day,when it all will end?

when people don't feel the need to constantly defend!


The Growth of the Enemy.

an enemy of society,is growing each day

hurting civilised people,going their own way

killing and spreading their curse

life in general considerably worse.

more groups appear almost one every day

whats their God,to whom do they pray?

What God tells them to kill?

No God does ,they kill for a thrill.

What God forgives,or condones their actions?

No God in reality,only their separatist factions.

no justification, for ending a life.

live by the sword,should they die by the knife?

only going to get worse.

the current growth of these factions of terrorists is set to grow.many experts today predict the problem will get a lot worse before it gets better.Theres no immediate end in sight to the constant supply of people disillusioned enough to lift a gun ,or plant bombs to further their deluded cause.they have no compunction, and no conscience with the acts they perpetrate.They sleep easy in their beds at night under the guise of a God that they claim justifies killing.

Ive always said to my kids,THERES NOTHING IN LIFE WORSE THAN AN IDIOT WITH A CAUSE.

Stand and Be Counted.

Sentencing these so called people?

What's the way forward with these killers?

See results

IN REALITY!

To be honest,I don't think there's any one solution to rid society of these extremists.i don't think any Government currently has an answer to the problem.A lot of solutions have been put forward in recent years,some controversial,some not.Theres no immediate solution jumps out at you to end it for good.i really don't see an end to the problem(ever!). That may sound a bit negative,but I'm a realist in life.i think black is black and white is white,there is no middle ground.Terrorists only react to violence,they use violence to get their message across,maybe that is the way forward,maybe we should treat them with as much disdain and contempt that they show everyone else,who knows what's right and what's the wrong way to go.what is evident,we aren't doing enough to stop it.

      Well said. This hub is a fine example of freedom of speech, which is worth dying for.
