With the latest news coming in from Paris about the multiple attacks, over 140 people dead and many more wounded, and the declared state of emergency, this is a reminder about what is wrought by terrorism: either the tendency to shrink away, or the tendency to stand even straighter, looking any horror in the eye and saying, with the utmost conviction: we will not yield.
Terrorism only grows stronger with capitulation. It seeks to control via fear. If some of the greatest evils on Earth have been defeated in the past, they may be so again. All it takes is the will and the willingness to say again: we will not yield.
In solidarity with the people of Paris, and all of France: one of the most famous renditions of the "Marseillaise" in film history.
Our thoughts and prayers are with you.
