As there is seemingly no end to the tragedy in Gaza, I can’t help but feel an overwhelming sense of grief and I am wondering how anyone in this world could watch this destruction and total carelessness for humanity and not feel the same way as I do. Forget religion, politics, ideologies, they are all completely irrelevant and yet the world is making these precursors the issue to divert from the reality. The reality is, these people are human beings, they deserve the same privileges, rights, and respect as any other human. These 1.8 million living in Gaza are suffocating under circumstances we can’t even fathom, and they are looking for something simple of which we take for granted: to live in a world where they have a potential future not in a world filled with fear. I am not Palestinian but I am human. If you are not standing up for the people, the women, the children, the lives that have no future other than this suffering, than as far as I can see you are standing against them and the world can not move forward until every one stands up in some way, shape or form against this evil no matter how big or how small. Our responsibility as human beings in this world is to showcase the injustices no matter where they stand, (i.e.: Syria, Egypt, Africa, Libya…) and no matter how insignificant you may think your voice may seem, because somewhere in the world there are children losing their lives over property and politics. It’s a senseless, arrogant, and truly uneducated act of violence. Please educate yourselves so you can make a possible difference, please look outside your own religion and country affiliation and look inside yourself as a human.
