Muslims' lives matter.



Do not let the world fool you. Please don't. I beg you. Just listen, okay?

Bad things are happening around the world, and we might be tempted to point fingers to the people who definitely don't deserve it and who are in far more danger that our westerns minds would dare to imagine. Being in a safe place makes it easier to say and point what's wrong, what's not good, but I tell you my friend, do not let them fool you.

After the attack in Paris everyone seems to realize how dangerous and inhuman ISIS really is, the truth is that what happened was a terrible, terrible event, but I want you to listen to me, just for a moment.... Do you know that hundreds and thousands of muslims are fleeing their homes because they are afraid of these people who use the name of their religion as an excuse to do what they do? I want YOU to know that Muslims are not terrorists, they are not heartless people, but do you want to know what are they?... People, people who have suffered so much that your priviledge self, could not even begin to imagine what they have endured in their homeland, they are people running from the lives, humans.

Let me tell you another thing, ISIS is just a terrorist group that claims to be Muslim, but they are not, I assure you. Taking your religion and use it as justification of hate crimes and murders of innocent people has nothing, absolutely nothing to do with religion and everything with hate.

Words.

There is something about words that fascinates me, I cannot explain. I don't know if it's the simple fact of being able to create them and doing what I wish with them but it's also the fact that they make sense and tell me things, things I didn't know or maybe I did and didn't realize.

I had to say it...

First I must say that I am not the religious type, I do believe in God and I do have a religion but to be honest I am not constantly going to church.

Today at work I said that I forgot about Ash Wednesday and for those of you who don't know what is Ash Wednesday (is a day of fasting and is the first day of Lent in Western Christianity), so I was simply telling to some of my co-workers about it and in the moment there was a guy who works with me as well, he made a joke about how I could just placed the symbol of the cross myself and that's it and in that moment I swear to God, I wanted to punch him, like Seriously? SERIOUSLY? that's really something you find funny to joke about? and what made me even angrier is the fact that he's from a different religion than mine, so I found it was so disrespectful in so many ways and when he said it I only felt mad but as minutes passed it HURT!! Yes, hurt, because he was not only making fun of the ceremony itself but of my beliefs .... And the other people in the room said to not pay attention to it and let it go, but how couldI? How? NO, Seriously, How can I let it go?... right now half of the world is fallig into pieces  for silly comments like that, comments mocking beliefs and religion. 

The funny thing is, this is actually the second time I find some asshole who's stupid enough to say things like that, yes people in the twentieth fist century! Idiots must be falling from the sky, like Do they know this is one the reasons why so many muslims, jewish, christians and more religios group are dying and killing each other every day, full of hate. 

And I don't even care what religion you are!!!.. I'd much rather focus of the things we have in common than the things we do not.


“Spirituality doesn’t separate people, but unite them all, regardless the religion they profess. But we are blind to this simple truth”
