Another final note . . .

I almost let it slip by, today January 13th, marks a very important event. "J'accuse" was published on the front page of the Paris daily, L'Aurore. On the 13th of January 1898, Émile Zola risked his career, his reputation and even his life. His was a life of comfort and artistic acclaim; nevertheless, he risked it all and stood up for justice. We celebrate the power of the pen and the strength of one man following his truth - "J'accuse"

"If you ask me what I came to do in this world, I, an artist, I will answer you: I am here to live out loud." - Émile Zola
