:) read below hehe
Hi guys : ) Well I got some important news. This site is gonna be a memorial so I probably wonít be using it to use to comment on your guysí sites. BUT, and this is a big but, you can add my other id as a friend and I use that one to get to and talk to people on their sites. (through commenting). If you donít know it already, PM me for it. :D But this site will largely remain a memorial.
I wanted to bring up an issue that has concerned me for a few years. This is related to the memorial. Since the attacks of 9/11, Muslims have been scapegoated for the terrorist actions. The ones who attacked NY, Washington D.C. and Pennsylvania were Muslims, but that doesnít mean people have to scapegoat EACH Muslim to be a terrorist simply b/c of his/her race. Iíve heard stories where Muslims go to supermarkets and get looked at in a bad way because of their religion and race. Even worse, thereíve been times where theyíve been attacked and killed, being blamed for the attacks. Worst of all, even non-Muslims have been attacked because they look like Muslims. Examples of these are non-Muslim Arabs, Middle Eastern people in general, and Indians (as in they are from India). I know there havenít been many reports of this kind of stuff happening lately (excluding the reports you hear about from Guntanmo (sp?) Bay and Iraqi prisons, I will not go into that issue because it is more controversial and involves much of politics which we do not need on this site). I just hope that these attacks and scapegoating will stop. Itís not necessary and only brings more hatred and anger. That isnít necessary, especially for those suffering from the attacks. There are people who are suffering because they lost their loved ones due to terrorism; do they need to see any more violence? And besides why must we all stereotype? Iíve talked to Muslims before and I have read about their religion and learned about it too. Itís a peaceful religion that does not support violence. Islam is against such attacks and does not tolerate things like this. Hopefully this violence and stereotyping will end.
Lastly, I want to say a request. This isnít exactly related to the memorial but a friend of mine needs your support. Her mother had a big surgery and lost a lot of blood. Her momís gonna be okay and I think sheís gonna recover but itís gonna be hard on her (the mother and my best friend) and the recovery will be a long and hard process. Please pray for my best budís mother. Oh ya my best budís id is Marikmine so if you wanna PM her with some nice comments, u can :). Thanks guys. And please pray for SessLover18's cousin. SessLover18 is my friend and sister and well her cuz got sick and is in the hospital. And she's very sick right now, please pray for her and my best bud's mom. (I don't know her condition other than she's really sick). And oh ya, if you ever need some help or support and want to ask people to pray for those who you are worried or care about, feel free to ask. This is a memorial but I would also like all of us to help each other too. It helps make the world a better place and helps make this site a more comfortable and good environment where everyone can get along. : ) Take care. Bye.
Your angel on Earth who luvs you,
