“The world is not dangerous because of those who do harm, but because of those who look at it without doing anything”- Albert Einstein
Earlier this week, the world was horrified when gunman, who according to witnesses were Islamic militants, killed a dozen people in the Paris office of the magazine Charlie Hebdo. Yesterday, gunman, also reported by witnesses to be Islamic militants, rushed into a kosher supermarket, holding hostages and killing 4 people.
In the days leading to World War II, the Allies gave the Sudetenland to Nazis to appease them and hopefully prevent another war. That didn’t go as planned.
We need to take a stand NOW. We need to tell these people that they CANNOT do what they have been doing. Just because they do not agree with someone does not give them the right to kill and destroy. I am tired of turning on the news and seeing that more people are dead or dying because of terrorism.
Lesson not learned.
