To our Friends in Paris:
We are sorry for the terror and grief you have experienced over the last few days. You have undergone an unbelievable assault on civilization and freedom. We mourn with you. We mourn the loss of the artists and journalists of Charlie Hebdo and their voices.
Charlie Hebdo, Before the Massacre
, a short op-ed documentary
published in the New York Times
, shows the journal's unique brand of humor and satire while providing an inside view of a finely honed spirit of collaboration which we can all aspire to emulate.
We stand with you in solidarity for the freedom of expression and respect for diversity of ideas which enrich our collective discourse and spark our creativity.
We know that you will continue to light our world.
Alma Robinson, Executive Director
