Charlie HebdoCartoonists from around the world have responded in the only way they can to the tragedy that unfolded in Paris yesterday. The cartoon above is from Washington Post cartoonist, Tom Toles.  A collection of cartoons from around the world were posted in the U.K.’s Daily Mail today which you can peruse here.

Below is an image that went viral last night on Twitter showing tens of thousands of Parisians braving bad weather to pour out into the streets with signs expressing their defiance.  It is like Tom Toles cartoon says, “but the pen will endure”.
