"May you have a blessed life."

I really need to stop reading the yahoo comments.  I know the select few I read is not the majority voice of our nation, but it is disheartening reading words of hatred.  Hatred for a group of people.

The same hatred brewing in the hearts of the commenters' is the hate that fuels terrorism all over the world.

It's ignorant; it's hypocritical.

Today I spoke with someone who is Muslim.  He was very kind.  We laughed.

And at the end of our conversation he said, "may you have a blessed life."

I have never had those words spoken to me.  Not a blessed day, but life.

I value other cultures, I value diversity, I value tolerance and I value truth.


يجب عليك ان تظهر الاحترام لمشاعر الآخرين وأفكارهم...حتى لو كانت عكس ما تفكر وتشعر به تماما
Translation: "You should show some respect for what other people see and feel, 
even though it be the exact opposite of what you see and feel." 
- Luigi Pirandello
