Charlie Hebdo cartoonist draws hopeful message for Paris after attacks
Sfar, who could not be immediately reached for comment, typically uses French in his cartoons, but chose English for this particular sketch. The cartoon depicts a perturbed looking man and a speech bubble stating the following:
"Friends from the world, thank you for #prayforParis, but we don't need more religion! Our faith goes to music! Kisses! Life! Champagne and joy!"

On social media, at the time Sfar posted the cartoon, #PrayForParis was widely circulating, but now Sfar's hashtag is also taking off.

The #ParisIsAboutLife hashtag is one of the greatest I've ever seen. As a person who doesn't pray, it's nice to have a way to express love.— Jess Tholmer (@tholmz) November 14, 2015
The cartoon and its hashtag is particularly special because less than a year ago, Charlie Hebdo was the target of a deadly terrorist attack when gunmen affiliated with the Islamist terrorist group opened fire in the Charlie Hebdo offices, killing 12 people.
Details are still unfolding concerning Friday's coordinated attacks that have killed 129 people dead and 352 wounded.
