All eyes were on the George Clooney as he gave a beautiful speech  when he received the Cecil B. DeMille Award for lifetime achievement. Mr. Clooney dedicated his speech to his lovely wife Amal and his final dedication was to the unity of marches in Paris and elsewhere in the world in   the wake of the Charlie Hebdo shooting. “And one last thing: To reiterate what we’ve all been talking about, today was an extraordinary day,” said Clooney. “There were millions of people who marched not just in Paris, but around the world. And they were Christians and Jews and Muslims. They were leaders of countries all over the world. And they didn’t march in protest; they marched in support of the idea that we will not walk in fear. We won’t do it. So, Je Suis Charlie. Thank you.”
