In the wake of Wednesday’s terror attacks at the offices of Charlie Hebdo, a number of global newspapers showed solidarity with the publication — and the people of France — by publishing these front page images.

Instead of sensationalizing horrific still photos from surveillance video of the killings with big, bolded headlines screaming “terror” and “massacre,” these front page editors chose instead to focus on inspiring images of French (and journalistic) resolve.
In the process, they took a defiant stance against the notion that writers, artists, and satirists could be bullied into not speaking their minds.
