Is this what we want for our children?

From CNN.com…

Admitted 9/11 mastermind Khalid Sheikh Mohammed told a U.S. military tribunal he personally beheaded Wall Street Journal reporter Daniel Pearl in 2002, the Pentagon revealed Thursday.

“I decapitated with my blessed right hand the head of the American Jew, Daniel Pearl, in the city of Karachi, Pakistan,” said a Pentagon transcript of Saturday’s hearing. “For those who would like to confirm, there are pictures of me on the Internet holding his head.”

Once again, I ask, how do we stop these people? How do we stop these people before they kill all of us (Jews, Christians, other Muslims who don’t conform to their standards, etc.) to have the planet to themselves? How do you stop people who consider themselves blessed to kill?

Admittedly, Daniel Pearl‘s death has affected me profoundly. To have someone suggest that it was nearly the highlight of his life to kill him is, well, abominable.

I don’t know about you, but I fear for what my children will have to do to protect themselves later in life and in their children’s life. While I’m trying to teach my child tolerance, their teaching their children hatred under the guise of being blessed. Plus, they are having MORE children. Do the math. Hatred is flourishing in our current society and continues to increase.

I’m at a loss. I’m disappointed. This week has been a huge disappointment for me with regard to humanity. Makes me think that IUD is going to be in for the full 5 years!

Don’t even get me started on what our president is and isn’t doing. I have a countdown on my Firefox menu that says 677 days left. It ain’t soon enough!

  1. You echo my thoughts so closely, Linda. I often wonder what the future holds for our children, and whether we’ve done enough to prepare them for a world where such incredible hatred exists.

    The lack of humanity stuns me. I have no answers, only a fervent and likely unrealistic hope that the darkness will recede back into the stone ages from which it has emerged.
