The baddies have hit hard again! Terrorist have taken over three dozen lives in the least and most unexpected place imaginable. Brussels is in mourning and the questions remains, they linger, should we soon hit them back and how hard? Should we stay at home in fear or go out and enjoy our right to live? The answer to both questions is, “Yes!” We should hit hard all those extremist that torment our right to live and want to prevent us from living a full and bountiful life.
The first step, when war has been declared, is to not take it out on those who haven’t got the blame. We should approach our Muslim neighbors to have a deeper understanding of what’s going on and what’s happening in our convulsed world.
How to fight back the problems of terrorism? Well, it’s to not live in fear and go out. Economies and people around the world should flourish in equality. The other is to read up and understand the difference between Muslims and extremist. Many don’t know the differences and attack Muslims through hate crimes. Crimes of hate make us no better than those animals whom planted the bombs at the airport in Belgium.
Soon after the explosions, Paris is in fear once again and possibly [and understandably so] a high state of paranoia. After all, they suffered two attacks in 2015.
Now it’s time to mourn the Belgium victims and remember these souls innocently going to the Airport to fly out or pick-up love ones.
There’re no explanations for why these things should happen and we must remember in these difficult times our sense of humanity. That which makes us better than the animals perpetrating these acts across the world in the name of their beliefs and in truth, these people behaved soullessly. They use hate as an excuse to destroy, instead of learning how to protest peacefully the injustices of life. Take several minutes of silence to remember, be thankful and grateful for today.
What can be taken from this day? How lucky we’re to be alive and never waste time on the pettiness that drowns those who do these barbaric acts. Learn how to live, protest for what’s right, be true to yourselves and never forget those whom are suffering right now and the others who lost their lives.
For life is too short to waste in the mire and pettiness with those of little minds—living with a sense of vengeance and destruction. In the end, it all leads to nothing. Therefore, keep your three minutes of silence and never forget. Be safe out there and never forget who or what we are.
People whom take innocent lives because of their own frustrations with the world can never win. For this reason, we as a society have the upper hand and we shall obtain victory! Because we’re better in our convictions for justice than the terrorist who work to only bring a society down into chaos. That’s why I’m convinced we’ll make it!
