Solidarity with Journos and cartoonists everywhere from Gloria Poole, RN, artist of Missouri

I created a simple display to show solidarity [a sense of compassion understanding of the stress and risks involved ] with journalists and cartoonists everywhere because of the events today in France. I personally love to read and view the news and its photos. AND sometimes I even draw and then paint from news' photos. I cannot imagine a world where the Press is bound by shackles, or prison cells, or fear. I am blessed to be born in the United States where I am guaranteed the freedom of Press to publish my thoughts, words, beliefs both religious and political, my opinions, my art I create and yes, my cartoons I create too. I put the French as I saw it in the news today and then the English translation except that I put the letter a in parenthesis as (a) to make the name "Charlie" synonymous with a cartoonist or journo in this situation.

What happened in France today [to magazine Charlie Hegbo] should not have happened. It was an act of terror and an act of war, and a lot of people around the world will be mobilized because of it and descend on parts of the world like gnats on a dog in summer. I cannot do a lot of things I once could do, but I can draw, paint, sketch, photograph and write. This is my protest of acts of terror in France today.

I also tweeted this photo a few minutes ago. You viewers anywhere can view some of the cartoons I created on these blogs of mine:

As part of the first amendment U S citizens are also allowed to worship GOD [or not] and to protest their government with words and appropriate actions. It was a horrible thing that happened earlier today in France when 12 journalists and cartoonists were murdered for PUBLISHING their opinions. This post is my protest of that. I ask all protestors everywhere to remember the commandment of GOD as written, "thou shalt not kill" in Exodus 20:13, King James Holy Bible. There is a right and a wrong way to protest. The wrong way is murdering those you disagree with. The right way is writing or speaking, or creating satirical art, or creating cartoons, or writing books that present the problems in ways people can understand, or marching in the street, or sit down strikes, or praying in public ; or putting tape over your mouth with words such as a voice for the voiceless. There are literally dozens of way protestors can get attention without resorting to tactics that will send you to hell! For more about heaven [and hell] read some of the posts I put on my official blog for Tapestry of LIFE at

This is my electronic signature I created with digital ink and an electronic "oil brush" for 2015.
This is my signature I created with actual paint [but forgot to add in the Missouri ] that I am posting here for a reason.
This is my photo of the U S flag that I photographed on walkabout in Dec 2014.
This is my hand on one of my Southern Baptist/ Great Commission Baptist crosses that does not have a graven image of JESUS on it, because as a faith, Southern Baptists do not allow graven images [statues] of GOD or in human form JESUS on their crosses or in their churches. I am a born again Christian believer in THE LIVING LORD JESUS who is alive in heaven according to the book of Revelation.
