To my sensitive and constantly worried mind, about one thing or another, I am immeasurably disturbed by the existence of Neo-Nazis, white supremacists, racism or terrorism full stop. Whether this is just in America or Europe, or anywhere in the world.
How did these people grow up, to end up feeling so much hatred towards fellow humans? What happened to them?
I am fully aware that mental illness has a lot to do with it, but also do the manipulators, the opportunists, the directors, exploiters of the mentally ill play a crucial role here. They are the drivers here.
Let’s talk about modern day racists.
Our grandparents fought, all over the world, against terrorists, our fathers did & our fathers, husbands, sons & daughters do, so that our children can sleep peacefully.
Terrorists like Nazis killed, brutally, millions of people. How can they or any terrorists ever be celebrated?
I struggle to understand it, like most of us do. It beggars belief.
Loss of life is irreplaceable. Families damaged for generations.
Education and community are crucial at eradicating any form of extremism. I choose to love my humans.
We work so hard with our boys to be loving and accepting, to see no colour ever, to see no race ever. We teach them that there is only one race; human race. We teach them to never judge or hate. And I know our friends and family try so hard with their children too.
Love is taught by loving our children and teaching them tolerance. It’s the only way forward.
“A constructive approach to diplomacy doesn’t mean relinquishing one’s rights. It means engaging with one’s counterparts, on the basis of equal footing and mutual respect, to address shared concerns and achieve shared objectives.”
Look after the vulnerable in your communities.
Praying for the fallen is not enough, Mr president!!!
