Blood Only Begets More Blood

It seems these days that the every time we pick up a newspaper or turn on the news, all we hear is that someone has been killed just for being who they are.

In London’s Finsbury Park neighborhood, a drunk man barreled his van into a group of Muslims as they were leaving their local mosque on Monday. One person was killed and others were injured. Virginia teenager Nabra Hassanen was minding her own business when she was attacked and killed near a local mosque.

I don’t know about anyone else, but I would like to open the newspaper or turn on the news and see a positive story for once.

Blood only begets blood. Murder and destruction because of prejudice begets only more murder and destruction. I know it is easy to see someone for the color of their skin or for the religious garb that they wear. The problem is that sometimes we cannot see past that. I am a human being, we all are human beings. Despite the labels that are given to us or we adopt as our own, we are still human beings. The sooner we accept that fact, the sooner our world will be a better place.
