We live in a world that is run by terror, by fatal attacks and lethal error. We live in a world overrun by fear, always afraid violence may draw near. We live in a world that is plagued with hate, a world where terror doesn't discriminate. We live cradled snugly in the arms of war, with factions abroad demanding much more. And since we've spoke back with heavy criticism, the world responded with a new threat, terrorism.
Knives guns bombs and more, attacking the innocent and killing galore. We see these attacks and mourn those killed, in darkest days more blood is spilled. Every attack with more and more killed, it's time we fight back and it's time we rebuild. Let's tear down our walls, the ones that divide, we must honour those, the ones that have died. I want to speak up and I stretch out my hand, because united against this violence we stand.
On a more personal note, I want to express my sorrows for all those who were killed and injured in the Manchester bombing on Monday. I'm disgusted that people have such extreme views and go as far as to spill innocent blood just to prove a point. My heart goes out to all those affected, united we stand.
