    I don't like the symbol. Does not work for me. Even if I appreciate the "good intentions" that I asume are underneath it. It confuses me. What is the sign actually saying? We respond to indiscriminate acts of terrorism with "peace"? It could almost be read as "we offer you the other cheek". And France is not doing this. The response is more bombings, more innocent people are dying, more disenfranchised youth responding to ISIS "call of the siren" , responding to their millennialism pull. Is perhaps visually "smart" but confusing on its "content". In that sense, I don't think is good "propaganda".

    My rating is the same as all the others. It's very beneficial because it's showing that the world needs to have peace and to raise awareness for the terrorism that has happened. This is in no way a harmful peace of propaganda.

    This symbol is nice, but it does little to help the people in France affected by this. Knowing about suffering is not the same as doing sometthing about it.

    This type of propaganda is beneficial cause it causes the public to be aware of what's going on. The propaganda isn't instructing people to do anything or feel anything. It's just symbolism to show the audience what's happening.

    I think this propaganda is beneficial for society because it promotes global awareness of how terrorism is bad. People should be aware that terrorism exists and it should be stopped.

    This is definitely beneficial because it very simplistically shows the unified support for Paris after the attacks. It's a perfect representation of the practically universal plea for peace.

    The symbol became an easy way to show support over the terrible thing that happened. Personally this was effective to me and it woulked well and spread over all social media very quickly. I think it helped raised a lot of awareness.

    I think that this is a very helpful symbol because it raises awareness about what has happened in Paris, but what does raising awareness mean? In spreading this picture, more and more people recognize the grief that France is going through, and therefore there is a possibility of more help donations to France than had the news not been spread.

    Jean Jullien's art is a very positive way to show support for all the people effected by this horrible event. I think that this symbol is great because it doesn't attack anything or portray anything in a bad light. It simply gives a message of peace. Also it includes the Eiffel Tower, a staple in the City of Lights.

    I find this to be very beneficial in the sense that it will give France a new identity in the world, as well and the rest of the earth rallying with them to get back on their feet. It's very similar to 9-11 but we've changed for the better, and so will France.

    This was definitely a beneficial piece of propaganda because it is a symbol of awareness. Almost everyone chose beneficial because it is a sign of spreading peace and it highlights on global terrorism and how instead, we should have peace. There are no words, instead, the picture does all the talking. The picture defines a world of peace especially in Paris because it was the most recent target of terrorism.
