What goes on in the mind of somebody or of a group that attacks an multi-cultured, multi-religious event focused on achievement, celebration and charity in this brutal and cowardly way ? What cause does justify such an inhumane act ? Why does somebody willfully wants to kill mothers, children, fathers, sisters, brothers to get his voice off anger heard around the globe ?
Like all meaningless and useless aggression in the world, there can’t be legit answer to that.
We can’t and should not accept this kind of violent acts, unfortunately we have to learn to deal with it. We can deal with them by showing the world around us that we can’t accept these brutal acts. We should learn and learn our children about compassion, tolerance, patience and the hardest one; forgiveness. Even in difficult moments and hard times like these, we should try to remember and hold on the mindset that peace starts within each one of us. Only when there is peace in ourself then there is no space for anger and hatred, the fuel for violence, anymore. Only then, and it is a dammed slow process, we are able to change the world into a better place. And if we are facing in the right direction, all we have to do is keep on walking, one step at a time.
My heart is saddened by the loss and the pain in all those innocent women, man and children, my thoughts are with them.
