Be Safe

Nowhere is safe anymore. I'm tired of all of these stuff, of bombs on planes, of shooting innocent people, of terrorising the world, of killing in cold blood. Once I thought that all people, no matter what their differences, wanted one thing in common : peace. Maybe I was wrong.

What has this world become? How did it all start? Why are we only realising this now? And yes, I am afraid. Not just for me, but for my loved ones and the good people of this world. You might say, no, don't be afraid, if you are scared it means they've won. But you know what? We've let them win, by cultivating hatred and closing our eyes when things were less severe by thinking that "it's ok, this is not happening to me". We let them win by closing our borders, blaming immigrants all the time for the bad things happening in our country. I live in a European country and yet never feel safe, no matter where I am. If you had one chance to safe yourself and your family by fleeing, wouldn't you?

It's about time for all people to find the humanity they've lost and unite to fight this. I don't know how, I don't have the answers. But maybe love and compassion is a small step towards that.
