Responding to the Paris Attacks

I saw a lot of beautiful artwork in honor of the victims of the Paris attacks on November 13, 2015.

I didn't know quite what to draw.  I felt a little stalled by the horror of it all.

I think what really struck me was the juxtaposition of the anti-humanity agenda of the terrorists and the celebration-of-humanity activities they disrupted:  sport, music, breaking bread and sharing wine together. 

It should be so simple...

Anyhow, I scribbled this little drawing, both in remembrance and as an attempt to capture my own response.
