And within the darkness of the night, there is a light that shines so bright. As I close my eyes and drift away to a land where there is love health, peace and blessings. I wanted to take the time to think and reflect upon my previous thoughts. The absurdity and barbarism of the Orlando attack continues to disgust me. As I previously mentioned the "Muslim Terrorist" has just assisted to perpetuate stereotypes of hate and hurt. Once again the cycle of violence will reveal that Muslims should be feared. The hurt continues ...
On a more positive note, we can see how Muslim leader are coming out to speak about the attacks, condemning and also revealing that Islam is not what the "hater" has shown through his actions. They have shown support for this community by taking part in this out - reach.
What we should also be mindful of is the fact that it was not only the LGBT community that was a target, it was also a community populated with individuals of the Mexican descent. What does this suggest? Not one but two communities have been targeted. 1. The Muslim communities - to instill hate and 2. the Mexican LGBT community, to hurt and harm. Two dear communities have been a target. Broken heart ...... heal ... ...
The Mexican people's heritage is that of one to be proud of, with lands that were historically rich in Gold, Woods, Mahogany, Rubber, and fruits. This is a land that is blessed with beautiful natural resources. This is a heritage of honor, a heritage to be proud of. These people deserve to be loved, not hurt, not harmed, why did you kill?
With regards to guns. It just seems like so much is being done to get guns out of the hands of the wrong people, yet they continue to be accessible. As the world mourns this loss. We must remind ourselves, America has always been a nation of Inclusion. The true focus should be upon the gun problem.
