“We understand what just happened in the streets of America all too well. This is the reality here, we are deeply sorry that now you have to feel the same pain that we do. It shouldn’t be your pain or ours. You’re in our prayers.”
Iraqi man interviewed on television last nite in Baghdad, speaking on the Boston Marathon bombings.
It’s déjà vu all over again as President Obama becomes the fourth consecutive President to announce a bombing campaign in Iraq. Watch Presidents George H.W. Bush, Bill Clinton, George W. Bush, and now Obama make their statements over the span of two decades.
MLK, Jr.: “The greatest purveyor of violence in the world today is my own government. For the sake of those hundreds of thousands trembling under our violence, I cannot be silent.”
this picture means alot, because the world keeps getting worse and this war needs to stop because soon or later the world will come to an end, especially if everybody keeps killing and corrupting themselves.. why can all the countries get along and actually accept each others differences, wether its a religious, an economic difference or even a cultural/racial difference.. In the end we are ALL HUMANS and we ALL deserve respect.
“Let’s pray for Boston. And Syria. And Egypt. And Pakistan. And Afghanistan. And Iraq. And Lebanon. And Yemen. And the other countries I haven’t mentioned that get bombed daily and frequently without any media coverage. A life is a life and terror is terror however it’s defined in media coverage - or lack thereof.
Let’s just pray for whatever the hell this world is becoming.”
Guys I know that what happened in Boston was horrible, and we can’t undermine those people’s deaths like they don’t matter as much as the ones in Iraq, but not enough people know about Iraq. On April 16 there was a bus bomb killing 50 people and injuring 300. We can’t let one tragedy undermine the other.
As we mourn the tragedy at Boston; let us not turn a blind eye to the bombings in Iraq today as well. 31 dead and 200 injured. I hate that the worth of a life is contingent on the place of birth. Kyrie eleison.
