It seems everyone has something to say about the attacks in Paris. The trails of thought I saw in Facebook posts alone went from pray for France - to don't pray for France - to why are people only focusing on France when something horrific happened in Beirut - to it was a false flag - to the West only cares when it happens to white people - to it's time to close the borders and the mosques - to warmongering. What was even more disturbing was how people would full out attack each other over whatever opinions were expressed. Those, such as Isis, who are about destruction and harming others thrive on hate. If they're able to invite people into that negativity then they've succeeded. Allow me ask you this very important question: are your words and emotions contributing to the darkness that you're so opposed to?
We need to keep in mind that saying all Muslims are terrorists is like saying Westboro represents all Christians. We need to remember that the majority of the refugees are fleeing violence. It's horrific what happened in Paris, but we also need to acknowledge that this type of horror is something that many are experiencing on a regular basis. The refugees are fleeing for their lives, yet we're allowing our fear to close borders. What if the shoe was on the other foot? What if you were displaced from your country and no other country would take you in due to perceived association with the very people you're fleeing from? I hear the cries of war and I wonder how many innocent people have died and will die because they're caught in the crossfire?
Below is one of Human of New York's posts when he did his series on the refugees:
Instead of listening to the news barrage and getting into arguments over Facebook and with each other, I invite every person to take a moment and bring the good side of humanity back into the picture. Where there is darkness, let there be light. Send some light to all of this darkness. Get out of the ego (fear, anger, resentment...) and into your heart (LOVE, peace, compassion...). Send your loving energy to and pray for those who stoop to the lowest levels and commit these acts of atrocity. Those who only know hatred are the ones who need our prayers the most. It comes down to each one of us either being a part of the solution by raising our vibrations to those of love and compassion or being part of the problem by feeding the darkness with our own negativity, fear and hatred. It really is your choice. It stands true: be the change that you wish to see in the world.
I close with this beautiful video:
