This statement really scares me. Kim, I hope this was stated out of emotional strain and anger of the moment. Otherwise, it is a sad day if one truly believes this. It's sad when citizens of one country only get in an emotional uproar when their soldiers get hit. Then, when it happens it's off with all their heads. It scares me when I read words like that. I'm not trying to pick on you, just trying to highlight this specific statement. This kind of statement always rears its head from someone sooner or later during the wars.
There are so many wars and so many innocent people getting hurt in current day and throughout history. It makes you wonder why we don't turn our emotional compassion towards the world's people rather than only when it directly concerns the country in which we live. It's horrible when it's us vs them and so many boundaries are drawn in the sand.
We would be in such a different place today if people stopped looking at border lines and looked at showing individual human compassion for individual lives.
I am saddened by all
casualties and get very disturbed when all people of a certain citizenship are pointed out and targeted. After Sept. 11, it seemed your skin colour determined if you were an enemy or not. It's hearbreaking to know that racial acts like September 11 are happening all over again here in North America because of the current battle over in Iraq.
It just amazes me when the US or other countries go to war and we get tied into how many US or British soldiers are killed rather than how many lives has the world
lost today. When death strikes, it doesn't matter where the person was born. Since there will be a brother, son, father, mother, or sister grieving the same as you would for your own.
Not meant to offend or anger, just another view. I usually stay out of here, but this statement really got me.
