...for all the trauma in the world.
We need to turn to God right now about everything. Whether you believe in the Christian God, the Jewish God, the God of any religion...we all need to turn to our higher powers together on the issues that are plaguing this world.
God is the only one who can fix what's going on. He is the only one who has the power and desire to do so. More than that, He is the only one who can comfort the weak, save the perished, and create hope for those left standing.
It was a hate crime, plain and simple. A political, religious, and perhaps racial hate crime. Above that, it doesn't matter who was involved...what colour skin the people had who died/were injured, it doesn't matter what religion they were, it doesn't matter if they were male or female...what matters is that human lives are at stake.
This is a Godly matter. This is something that we all have to ban together to our God and to our fellow humans and fight this.
It was said that "an injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere."
The injustices in the Middle East are threats to our justice in the U.S. The injustices of Seattle this evening are threats to justice in the Middle East.
This is not a personal problem. This is a world problem. A human problem.
This needs to...well, I was going to say "this needs to be fought"...but fighting is what's brought us to this point in the first place.
Things need to change. Starting with each individual person. Yeah, I know that one person can't change the world...but it's worth a try.
Who's with me?
