Every time terrorists kill people, the news reports this horrific event by publishing graphic photos and broadcasting graphic video that can actually help spread the fear terrorists are trying to achieve. That’s why officials in Spain have asked people not to share graphic, disturbing images of the latest Barcelona terrorist attack.
Instead of inadvertently spreading the terrorist message of fear, people are sharing pictures of cats on the Internet. These pictures help people overcome their fear of terrorism and express solidarity against terrorist beliefs. Plus it fills the Internet with more cats, and that can only be a good thing.
