The pen is mightier than the sword

La Tour Eiffel.

La Tour Eiffel, Paris

Art can unite us. After the recent attacks in Paris, countries around the world lit up their landmarks with France’s national colors to display solidarity with the French people.

Terrorists hate unity. Hitler sought division and invaded France. Hitler like the terrorists committed suicide. After his demise, the monuments of France stood still. The bells of Notre Dame speak while the corpses of the fallen terrorists are silent.

Art has always been the heart of Paris. Terrorists used a satirical drawing as an excuse to strike the heart of Paris and slaughter innocent people.

The pen is mightier than the sword. The drawing remains intact while the terrorist fighting against it in Paris have perished.

Art outlives dictators and terrorists. Even now decayed ruins speak in Rome and Greece. Art is the foundation of culture.

Terrorists and madmen seem to be at war with art. They know the power of art. Destroying monuments are their futile attempts to rewrite history.

Viva La France!
