Even the word itself is frightening.
I’ve got a huge problem. I cannot stop thinking about what happened in Manchester. Something inside me just broke. I think I just lost all my faith in humanity. I can’t imagine why it’s hurting me so much. I mean yes, I can totally see why I’m upset about it, but this is something else. It’s almost like I lost someone I love.
Why? Why why why why? God damnit! Why would anyone hurt anyone? At all? I can’t even imagine hurting an animal (I am not saying in anyway that it’s okay to hurt an animal), how can someone deliberately kill so many people? So many innocent people who’ve done nothing wrong to them? I mean, obviously someone who would end their own life in an act of terrorism probably doesn’t care about anyone else’s life. But still? It doesn’t matter if they are children or adults, girls or boys, black or white. Yes, it is much worse when those who are targetted are young teenage girls. But it really doesn’t matter. Why is this world filled with so much of unnecessary hate and violence?
Can you even imagine what it’s like? Can you imagine what the parents who’ve lost their beautiful children are going through? I read that a married couple who’ve gone to the arena to pick their child were identified victims of the attack. Can you imagine what that child must be going through? Children losing their parents. Parents losing their children. People losing their loved ones. How does the people who survived it get over something like that? How does anyone get over something like that? My heart breaks for those people. I wish there was something I could do. If I could give up my life in exchange of stopping terrorism, I would. I wouldn’t let anyone I love do that (I would stop them with everything I got) because I wouldn’t be able to bear them gone, but I would do it. I’m a bit selfish like that.
Everyone has the same fate. Birth, life and death. Why would anyone not want to live life (the very short time period they’ve got) peacefully? With love? Joy? Who is to blame to this? God? Don’t you say yes to that. You have a free will. You are accountable for your own actions.
If that’s the case, and if everyone is born as an innocent child, how does this transformation happen? Who is to blame to this? Adults? Adults who’ve maybe mistreated or miseducated these terrorists when they were young? Does this mean we can eventually put an end to terrorism by educating the young generation? Teaching them right from wrong? Showing them that love is and always will be the strongest thing in the world? Well, I hope so.
My plea to the world –
While healing from this terrible attack, let us not point fingers at one another. Let this not be something which will divide us further. That is exactly what they want. If we let that happen, they win. Do you want them to win? You don’t. So don’t let them.
Please. Please let this be something which bring us closer together. Please let this be something which will help us get all of our forces together to put an end to this. Let’s show them that they cannot divide us. Let’s honour the lives of every victim of every terror attack. Because love indeed is greater than hate. Please. Let’s not let them win.
Open your hearts to people who’ve lost someone through an act of terror. Show them love. Their minds are at a very unstable state. They might tend to be vengeful. Show them, teach them, tell them that won’t get them anywhere. Tell them that isn’t what their lost loved ones would want from them.
Open your doors to the children of the world. They are what will save this world or, if it’s already saved, prevent it from starting all over again. Adopt an orphan from a foster home if you can give them more love than what they get from there. Save a child refugee from the distress they are in.
Come on people. I know we’ve got what it takes to end this. So let’s get started.
Love changes everything.. So fill the world with love, and let love do it’s thing..
With Love. ❤️
