A Memoriam for Paris

Today, we wake up realizing that the world is not the same again. Americans remember that feeling well from 14 years ago. We remember the fear and loss that the French now face. We also remember the comfort we took when our allies, including the French, stood with us as I hope the French now take comfort in knowing that America stands with them. As I look on this event and my role on this website, I can only take solace in knowing that our freedom, the freedom to create, to build, to exemplify the imaginative spirit that allows us geeks to love what we love, will continue. The attacks on Paris were done by those seeking to remove that freedom and replace it with terror for an ideology that does not value creativity and imagination but only seeks subjugation and death. To them I say, resistance is not futile. America resisted as will the French and as will the rest of the free world.

Today, we extend our most utter sympathies to the city of Paris. We also resist that terror that the perpetrators tried in vain to make us feel. We remember that we are free to imagine, to create, and to love all that we do.

And in true geek fashion, I say to Paris: Live long and prosper.
