Its a scary world we live in |

Hello
Today isn't going to be a cheery post about something random in my head, its going to be a more serious one and if you don't want to here what I have to say then please feel free to click of my blog. I want to talk about the situation in Paris. I said a while ago that I respect all religions and organisations and today I amend that statement. I respect all religions and organisations that just keep to themselves, who want to preach and spread love and peace. No matter what religion you are I know that the basic principles come into play, and it certainly does not justify murder. I have no respect for murderers, there is no need to take innocent lives or any lives for that matter.

As I hope most of you know, this week saw terrible crimes committed in Paris and I didn't want to not write about it, its something that to be honest affects everyone in this world. Innocent people lost their lives this week to terrorism, because they didn't like what Charlie Hebdo published. I understand that it must sometimes be upsetting to see your religion being mocked, I get it. Every single religion on this planet have been mocked, that's life and to be honest people know its a joke.  I find it sickening that because these terrorists took offence they went into the Charlie Hebdo offices and killed people.We all come across things and situations that we don't agree with in life but I know for a fact that no sane individual sees murder as a fitting punishment. Every generation has seen evil. I was born into a world that had its problems, had its evil, but since 1997 to me it seems like terrorism has taken over. When I was 4 the twin towers were part of a terrorist plot and came tumbling to the ground leaving devastation to thousand's of people, the world seemed to come to a stop.

 This year alone our TV screens have been filled with news that innocent people have been beheaded, it devastates me that this happened and I can even begin to imagine what the poor family's went and are still going through. I read RussellBrands blog post about the Paris situation and it spoke volumes. He  said this "we each have the power to create heaven or hell here on Earth, extremists on all sides are clear in their intentions and actions, we, the vast, powerful majority, Christians, Muslims, atheists and undecideds have to be more committed and more determined. We must love life more than they love death. We must love each other more than they hate, in God’s name, in Allah’s name in Charlie’s name, in all our names.". I think this sums up perfectly what I'm trying to say, I just cant put my feelings into words.

There is terror all around us, recently it came out the British government had put a stop to three planned attacks on the UK. We don't get told what's going on until its either been stopped or is happening, but we have to keep going. As hard as it is we cant live in fear or terrorists, its like letting them win. My only hope is that this one day comes to a stop, everyone has different beliefs but most of us share the same morals, all religions that I know of don't condone violence/ murder. If these people are killing in the name of their god or idol then they are putting it to shame, these people clearly don't practise Islam which people are getting a false view of. Islam is a religion of peace and love and that's what we need to remember, its a small amount of people in the terrorist group compared to the rest of the world. Every religion needs to come together, support each other because we like Russell brand said "We have the power to create heaven or hell here on earth", we are fighting a never ending war with evil but we cant let it win. We all live on the same planet and while we're on it we need to live peacefully together.

I found research for this post and I am sorry if any of it is wrong, I tried my best to look into the different points I made. I'm not trying to cause offence to anyone reading this, as I said I respect all religions and organisations that follow the basic laws, I just have no respect for the terrorist group like everyone else. Nothing justifies what they are continuing to do. I would like to get your opinions on the matter, does it scare you that this is now the world we live in?

Bye for now xxx
