We Will Never Forget
We take this moment of silence to remember the sacrifices of many, and the loss and grief we share.
Do terrorists represent all the people of a belief system? Or the few? Are monsters made or born? It can be difficult to separate the abominable acts of a few, from a culture or religion as a whole.
Radicals of hate crimes are found in every culture and belief system, so when, if ever, do they represent the whole? In the honor and name of what god, are these horrific acts blamed on? And what god would want the burden of being credited for these atrocities?
One I hope I’ll never know.
There are hate crimes committed and prejudice is handed out based on race or religious affiliation. And yet, do the “many” represent the reprehensible acts of the few?
I want to believe they don’t.
