Today, I watched the movie in titled "Blood Diamond". I cried at the end. Not because of the ending, or because of the things I saw in the movie, but because it is still going on today. And it is happening to my Muslim brothers and sisters. Why is it that in my country, movies are made about the very thing that is happening to the Muslims in Iraq, but people cannot see it? Children, Mothers, Fathers, Teachers, and Doctors are being unjustly killed everyday.It is sad no matter who is being killed, but we must also speak. I do not want to be one of the many who are blinged by what I am seeing on television. I definetly do not want to be one of those people who fear and hate Muslims because I think they are opressive or oppresed, and depressed, and destressed. I am a Muslims. And I am proud of it. A Muslim is one who submits his will completely to Allah and no one else. So yes. I am a Muslim and I would not have it any other way. I love making 5 prayers a day. I love the fasting in the month of Ramadan. I have a great love for those who follow the religion. So yes, it hurts me to see movies where innocent children, mothers, fathers, teachers, doctors, and INNOCENT PEOPLE. are being unjuslty killed.
