#JeSuisCharlie: The Most Poignant Responses to Yesterday's Devastating Attack on French Journalists

We are all Charlie.

A day after the horrific shooting at satirical Parisian magazine Charlie Hebdo that left 12 journalists dead, people the world over are coming together in solidarity. The attack, which is believed to be an Islamist militant strike against the publication's unfavorable coverage, has highlighted the power—and necessity—of free speech. 

#JeSuisCharlie is an emotional response movement on social media, including everyone from stars to fashion folk to people just like us. Here, we're sharing some of their most touching posts, to remind that not even the most violent acts can suppress humor, creativity, and love.
