According to Merriam-Webster’s on-line definition of “hate,” it is an “intense hostility and aversion usually deriving from fear, anger, or sense of injury.” Terrorists try to support their killing of innocent human beings for these reasons, as well as countless others.
How many innocent lives must be lost before we come together as a country to work against hate? So far, we do not know who planted these bombs and why. What we do know is that the reason is probably “Hate.”
It’s time that We, the People of the United States of America, do something no other nation has yet to do, and that is combat hate as ONE PEOPLE.
Our national agenda and dialogue must include educating the white supremecists, the anti-government hatemongers, and the people around the globe who burn our flags and presidential effigies that we are “One Nation Under G-d.” ONE is the key, and that hate rhetoric is not a part of who we are.
Each of us is created in the Creator’s image, no matter our skin color, religion or gender. We are each subject to the same rules and regulations, regardless of our skin color, religion or gender.
No man, woman or child should be teaching hate, as it is the most destructive force on this planet. Each life is a sacred universe. We need to teach this now in our schools, churches, mosques, synagogues and temples. We need to teach this in our police academies and military.
No life is more important than the other. We are equal, each and every one of us, as set forth in the Declaration of Independence.
We must treat terrorism like the disease that it is and get to its root if we are to look forward to eliminating it from this people, this nation, and this planet.
