Wake Up Call

I found this video very compelling that I had to share it with my readers. I commend Dr. Wafa Sultan for bravely voicing her opinion on Islam and Terrorism. When asked why she agreed to do the interview, she said she's trying to change the mentality of her people, that by changing their way of thinking, she's changing their behavior which will eventually change their future.

While we cannot force our own belief and ideals on others, peace can still be achieved between two individuals or among countries once we learn to respect each other for the human beings that we are. Religion plays a significant role in our lives, it's the source of our morality that influences our behavior. We are divided by the way we worship and who we worship, yet there stands one commonality between us when we both say our own religion is the true religion, when we say our religion dictates only what is moral and teaches mankind to love and respect life. When we learn to accept and show kindness towards others, regardless of religion, then peace is not far behind.

It only takes one person to start a ripple, but we can produce a wave of change if we all work together.

Thanks to The Greatest World Hero for sharing this video with me.
