15 years later, but yesterday to many.

My heart goes out to all those who were directly effected by the Oklahoma City bombing that took place 15 years ago. I hope you are able to find peace in your world.

When I think about this horrible period of time, I can’t help but compare it to the attack on the trade towers 6 years later. There really is no difference between the dark beings that caused these nightmares. Knowing how related they are I cannot wrap my head around why so many U.S. Americans have such hate and prejudice against Muslims, but none what so ever against Christians. All I can fathom is what I said in a blog many weeks ago; It’s easy to hate what we don’t understand.

Timothy McVeigh was a lot like so many Americans. He was a white US Army Vet, he was a registered Republican, and he was raised Catholic. The men who took over the planes on 9/11 were not like many Americans. They were not Americans, they were not white, and they were Muslim. Despite the differences the motive was the same. It was their hate for the U.S. government, and the strong desire to attract attention to their cause.

My point? Terrorism and terrorists come in many forms. Before you place judgment on the person next to you on the plane, remember good, honest, loving people come in all forms as well. There is evil in the world, and there is good. Remember those whose lives were taken, but also remember to love those who are next to you right now.

May peace be with you all. والسلام عليكم هل

    The sad reality is that people choose to look at issues like this in the most simplistic terms because this gives them something to grasp. They are not interested in detailed or examined thought, they want the comfort and solace given to them by Fox News.

    But this is common throughout the world, and throughout history. What we do not know is evil, and the evil among us is an aberration.
