And below are two shots of the Boston rally to support the French. The first is a new take on Je suis Charlie, Boston est la France. The second is specifically for Ahmed Merabet, the Muslim police officer killed while defending freedom of expression on the street in front of the Charlie-Hebdo headquarters.
