(WARNING: Not health stuff)
I wrote this over a year ago. Today I heard about this on the radio and have been seeing so many hate filled posts about the people killed in London so I decided I would finally publish it. I know some people won’t agree but that’s ok. I won’t get political often but we need to change this.
As far back as I can remember, we have been at war with “terror” and the “bad people” attacking our way of life and our beliefs. They have come to our country and killed our people, friends & families and tried to force their way of life onto us. We have been told by our media and family these people want to take over our country, take things from us and take away our culture.
No wonder we are all so angry with these evil people and want to seek revenge.. Right?
Now just for a minute, imagine you’re one of the hundreds of thousands of parentless children who has grown up in the Middle East and read back through the paragraph above in their shoes.
I’m not saying their culture is right and some of their beliefs aren’t messed up but maybe we are part of the problem? Maybe if we hadn’t spent decades bombing the hell out of them, maybe there wouldn’t be the hate carried by these people?
Imagine what they are told about us growing up? All they have seen and heard is of the west bombing the shit out of them. Google civilian deaths in Iraq & Syria at the hands of our efforts to give them “freedom”. It’s crazy. When we drop bombs on them, it’s branded an accident in the name of “freedom” and the battle to overcome the enemy, on our shores it’s terrorism.
I believe these people see that we are the evil ones, no different to our general view of them. Maybe trying to find peace is a better solution to continually bombing these countries and breeding more hate for generations to come? We have been at war for so long, it’s obviously not working.
