I woke up today to the news of a new London attack… Several innocent people were killed, and many more injured… It broke my heart.. just like everytime I hear of a new attack, my heart shatters…
Beirut, London, Paris, Nice, Stockholm, Frankfurt, Iraq… and many many more cities and countries, too numerous to count, already touched by this barbaric act of violence..
I can not wrap my head around the fact that innocent human life has become an amusement in the minds of those attackers. A quite easily disposable one for that matter. It really sickens me!
Being a doctor, I cherish every human breath.. I look at another person’s life as something very precious that needs protection. Maybe that is why I can not understand how ‘effortlessly’ those terrorists toy around with it.
How did we get to this point in life? A point in which killing another human being is as easy as blinking, or breathing. How more violence can we take before we are pushed to the limits? Before we start fighting bloodshed with bloodshed?
What are the terrorists getting out of this? What do they want? Fear? To be acknowledged? Well, they won’t get what they want anytime soon! We will stay strong! We should! That is the only way to keep moving forward.
In the meantime, all my thoughts and prayers go out to the victims and families of the London attack, and to all the previous attacks around the world.
