The amount of hatred I've read and seen over the past few days, after Friday's horrific tragedy has been astounding. I get that it stems from fear but there are simply no excuses for behaving this way.  I realize that the world is in pain but that does not give anyone the right to play God or Government and try to bring justice to any crime. Racism and hate is universal. When does it stop? Where do we draw the line?  If we don't set the right examples soon, we may never be saved.

It is all very hypocritical.  You can see the spreading of posts of love and sympathy in one regard, and hate for a race in another.  So which is it?  You are either PRO-HUMANITY or you’re not!  For violence or not!  It’s either, or but you cannot take both sides.  You cannot bring the world back from tragedy by beating up a woman, picking up her 2-young children from school, kicking her in the stomach and punching her in the face, screaming at her to go back to her country, calling her a terrorist; just because she's Muslim - as was the case at a school in Don Mills, Ontario, yesterday.

I honestly don’t know what is happening to our world but, I truly hurt for the human race right now.

And to think, our young children have to stay and live in a world that WE ourselves leave them in. We all better start leading by better example soon - or they are all surely doomed!

Mahatma Gandhi once said:  “Be the change you wish to see in the world”.  I think it’s about time we all take a page out of this same book and make some changes.  Changes that begin with us first.


  1. People are just insane! Like get a grip!!! When I heard this on the news yesterday, I was floored. I wonder how many people just sat back and watched most of it happen before they decided to do something about it or call the authorities. Just ridiculous. I'm ashamed to be a Torontonian right now


  2. It's hard not to hate people who hurt you or those you love. I think we are all capable of that when it hits home directly. I for one have caught myself saying selfish things and I admit that. But like you said it's out of rage, pain, fear. Feeling completely helpless to do anything against all these ISIS creeps. It's unfair. We should all be able to live in a world and bask in it's freedoms. Paris did not deserve this. New York and Washington did not deserve it either. But we're all living in fear. I do agree that what happened to that woman was brutal and unnecessary. People are bullies all around it looks like.

  3. I agree 100 % with what you're saying Gia. It's really sad to see that when the going gets tough, the bullies come out and play. It's not a fun world to live in these days! I'm ashamed for humanity too.


  4. Gia what a great post! You really got to the heart of it all and stuck up for what you believe ... AS ALWAYS! I truly admire that about all your posts and you as a Writer. Telling it like it is may not be the popular thing to do but it's definitely necessary. You're writing is just amazing!
