It’s not about Munich..

Paris, Israel, Turkey, Orlando, Belgium, Munich…they all have one thing in common: they have lost lives, they have experienced the fear of a loveless and vicious attack.

I must confess, I am scared. I am scared of what the world is turning into. I am sad to see people losing their faith in humanity…it doesn’t matter what God you believe in, what color your skin is, what clothes you wear or in which country you live…everyone is human and human life is precious.

I was lucky enough to grow up with parents that don’t give a fuck about a skin color or someone else’s religion. I was lucky enough to have parents who taught me to be good to others, that everyone else matters just as much as me. 

These people doing these horrible, vicious attacks…didn’t they have parents? Didn’t they have friends, family, neighbours? What happened for them to get so sad, so lost, so desperate, that they thought this was a good thing to do? How insecure must you be, to believe this is the right way? 

I am scared for my friends, for my family, for myself. 

Centuries ago Portugal and Spain banned muslims from their countries. This was in the medieval times. However, Isis has openly said (more than once) that they’ll attack those two countries. That scares me, not only because of everyone living there, but also because my Mother works in Lisbon. I have family and friends there and I think revenge for something that happened centuries ago, for which we today are not to blame is just stupid

Today it’s about Munich. But shouldn’t it be about every country getting attacked? About every kid that is left without a parent, for every parent left without a child, for every friend left without a friend….when did the world come to this? When did it become the rule, to go out and yell “fuck the foreigners” right before you start randomly shooting at people? Go do something with your life…heck, go play Pokémon Go for all I care…but stop killing each other and start loving and appreciate one another more.

    I feel you, Rosie! I am scared too. It’s every week, sometimes multiple times a week and it’s just getting worse. How bad does it need to get before actions are taken? I’ve been brought up that there’s no discrimination either, everyone is equal and the same. All humans and animals, so it’s ridiculous and insane to me that this type of behaviour is allowed.

    You need to see this in a more general context. Governments could contribute quite a lot to peace in the world and putting a stop to conflicts, e.g. by stopping arms exports/trade. However, certain people make a lot of profit through that, and so it will probably not happen. Think of resource conflicts/wars and their consequences…

      I understand what you mean, but I still think a lot could be starting at home with different education from the parents. =X
