Peace in the World

My emotions and thoughts of things around me grow everyday and they become more clear to me everyday. I always wonder to myself, why people call people names when they are the same as them but yet people claim everyone is equal. I thought the solution of everyone being equal was fixed back in the days and making people colored and their religion a part of the past in the human eyes but the way I see it its only getting worst as generation goes on. Wars seem to never stop, they seem just to be getting worse. Name calling and pointing fingers seem to happen often on a daily basis. Peace seem to never be near for anyone. Problems occur on a daily basis now. People can never really be safe or trust anyone.

Recently, in the world Gaza has been attacked by Israel. They say the reason they attacked and killed over thousands of innocent adults and children was because of trying to stop a “terrorist” group called Hamas but if they were really after this group then why is there bombs and weapons pointing at little children and families that has nothing to do with them. Why do they always need to hurt the innocent ones.. They haven’t did anything wrong to deserve this. Israel and everyone else is always trying to call Muslims the terrorist group. Why isn’t people seeing it in the other side’s point of view their always showing the wrong things which is said because that’s what makes people judge. Their killing innocent people all over the world too. Wouldn’t that make them just as much as a terrorist? Yes, if you haven’t noticed yet I am an American Muslim. I’m not saying all of this because I’m a Muslim. I’m saying this because people are always putting things on the Palestinians and blaming them. When they do just as much or maybe even more. I just want to believe that peace and forgiveness is possible and will happen in the future. I know this will not be easy but I know it’s possible. Just put the weapons away and talk about solutions. People shouldn’t deserve a short life because of these problems. This world is able to change. “Martin Luther King had a dream and so do I its up to us to change this generation and This I believe.
