I would like to dedicate this post to those who have suffered as a result of the attacks on the twin towers and the Pentagon 13 years ago this day. I would like to dedicate this post to our friends and family who have stuck together through those times and hardships and to those heroes who took action to protect their friends and family here. I would like to dedicate this post to our troops who have bravely defended our nation these past 13 years. I want to dedicate this post to the Arab families and communities who have had to endure the wrath of those blinded by corruption. I want to dedicate this post to the Muslims that follow the Qu’ran with their heart, and to those who do the same with the bible, and to anyone else who was able to see past the corruption of their leadership and refused to let it affect their spirituality.
These are scary times we are facing, it gets scarier when the reality gets closer to us. With threats coming from halfway around the world, it can seem like they’re a long way off, it can be easy to ignore them. I am Lebanese myself. I spent this past summer there as ISIS continued to grow around Iraq and Syria. They even attempted a skirmish on the border of Lebanon but thanks to the brave soldiers of the Lebanese Army, they were not able to get past the border.
In the face of trouble ahead. When dealing with violence, hatred, and blood, it can be easy to get overwhelmed, and sometimes, you may forget to question morality.
Some people have asked me for my word on what we should do in the Middle East, this is all I have to say.
