A fellow blogger that I converse with through Facebook, put a comment on today of a topic that I have been contemplating strongly writing a post about. Her comment has sparked me to do it.
It is a topic so controversial and one that no one really wants to think about but I can’t help thinking about. That is what is going on in the middle east right now.
The radical group is terrorizing and killing with abandon and has no respect for human life. I’m not going to get into their beliefs and reasons they think they have for doing this. This is not a political post about issues. It is a ‘human interest’ post about ‘human beings’.
We live in freedom where we do not have to live in terror every day for ourselves or our children. I honestly have tried to imagine how on earth the dear people that are being threatened and even killed every day, manage to survive, in body or mind or spirit.
I do not like war, and I do not like even the thought of our beloved sons and daughters going off to war. I am also a Christian and I value life immensely; but how long do we let this group kill at will and terrorize people before we do something other than ‘negotiating’ or doing some air strikes?
I can’t help but think of the atrocities of World War 2 and the holocaust, and what occurred before all the free nations of the world took a stand. My brother served in WW 2, and so I know that no one wants to think of our loved ones going off to war.
I’ve stated what is on my mind because each day seeing what is going on, has saddened me so. It is my opinion only. I just find it so difficult to understand that life seems to have so little value in some areas of the world.
