A Death Is A Death, Or Is It?
Many lives were lost last week. Some died peacefully of natural causes, others accidentally and some due to various illnesses. It’s just the natural cycle. We live, we die. But what about those who die as victims of madmen or men who in their warped minds, murder in the name of their Gods? Or in the name of Justice? Or revenge? Or their own idiotic and personal agenda? It’s still a death.
The news was saturated during the week with discussions and updates on the attack in Paris that left about 20 people dead. It was appalling. It was Paris. Yes, that Paris. How could this happen? Were they real terrorists or just wannabes hiding behind their madness by claiming to be? Who cares? People died. But yet, they were still just deaths, like all the others who died that week. God Bless Their Souls.
Also last week, Boko Aram, now that’s a real Islamist terrorist, conducted a massacre in a Nigerian city that may have taken the lives of as many as 2000 civilians! Did you hear that? Two Thousand Civilians! Most likely you didn’t hear about this one because it wasn’t Paris and it was old news. You can still read it here. They kill each other in those parts anyways, they are like savages, who cares? I do. The death toll dwarfed Paris’ but still it wasn’t on the same scale. Paris vs Nigeria? No contest.
A death is a death no matter where, how and when. How could they have missed reporting this mass murder? Two thousand versus twenty, including the killers. Remember, a death is a death…
Note: Thoughts and prayers to the victims of this madness that is sweeping the globe. God Bless Us All.
