I will not hold my breath
If the bomber is Christian, no one will blame Christians or Christianity.
If the bomber is Jewish, no one will blame Jews or Judaism.
And if the bomber is Muslim, I expect my country and countrymen not to blame Muslims or Islam.
But whoever this guy is – he is either – evil, ill or both.
If he is not a Muslim, he is also my problem, since I know that Allah meant Islam to help everyone, and I will be asking myself where was my mosque when this guy needed help or had problems. I will also be asking where was my Church and Synagogue to help this person out.
I need my community to rise up and to help our country rid itself of the depression or sickness that caused the CT shooting, Columbine, Times Square bombing, and any other evil act. Regardless of what race, religion, creed, age, mental capacity – then it is our job to work together to rid our country from this ignorance and hate.
The bomb that killed did not differentiate based on race, religion or age – and neither should we.
