Thoughts On the Chabad of Poway Shooting

A week ago yesterday, which was Easter Sunday, bombs went off across Sri Lanka. When all was said and done, hundreds were dead and many more were injured.

Today, there was a shooting closer to home. In San Diego, one person was killed and three were injured in a shooting at the Chabad of Poway synagogue. Today is also the last day of Passover.

I hate to ask what is a simplistic question, but can’t we all get along? Is it so impossible to just live and let live? Why must we choose who is worthy and who is unworthy based on factors such as race, religion, sexuality, etc? At the end of the day, we are all human beings. We breathe the same way, we eat the same way and we use the bathroom in the same way.

For once, I wish I could watch the news without hearing that someone has been attacked or killed because of who they are.

May the memory of the person killed be a blessing to those who loved them.

Thoughts On The Attack in Sri Lanka

I don’t know about anyone else, but it seems like terrorist attacks are unfortunately just another blip on the news cycle.

Across Sri Lanka, bombs went off in Churches and hotels that are known to be frequented by foreign visitors. As of this post, 207 people are dead.

The fact that today is Easter Sunday points to someone who wanted to send a very specific message.

My heart breaks for those who were killed. We should all have the ability to live a long, happy live. Unfortunately, some people are of the mind that unless we all agree to live by their rules, those of us who live differently have a mark on our backs.

May the memory of those killed be a blessing and may the justice system in Sri Lanka prosecute those involved in the attacks to the fullest extent of the law.
