No matter your skin color, race, sex, ethnicity, nationality, religion or background, everyone deserves to be treated equally with kindness and love, but most importantly, everyone deserves freedom.
As human beings, we are all destined for freedom. I think of it as not merely a want, but a need. We need freedom. Freedom demonstrates the veracity of the human person, it defines us as human beings. But understand that if one does not have freedom, it is like loosing your will to live.
As human beings, we are all keen on judging one another, to jump to conclusion about that person, but we often forget that we ourselves have our flaws and that we are not perfect. That said, I think today’s society has gone too far in judging one another.
I’m referring to the millions of immigrants who are constantly being mistreated and are being told to go back to their home country. But don’t get me wrong, not every immigrant is being mistreated, in fact, many countries are welcoming and are open to immigrants, to give them the life that they need and deserve, which is a better and safer life.
But just imagine the hard life that these people are going through and are currently going through, hoping to find a better and safer life for not only themselves, but for their family. Recently, I just don’t understand why many countries are not willing to open their borders for these immigrants who have traveled a long and difficult way. I completely understand the security measures and what not to enter the country, but the fact that thousands of people from different countries are protesting against these immigrants is inhumane.
I think that many of these people are afraid that they will loose their values and culture because a new race and religion is settling in, but I also think that these people have the wrong impression on these immigrants. Many of whom believe that these immigrants are terrorists because that’s how they’re being portrayed in the media. The truth of the matter is, it’s false. Sure we have been hearing about terrorist attacks, but that shouldn’t give us the impression that these people are bad and that they are terrorist. Know that this does NOT represent them and their religion.
I think I will cut it short and tell you that the reality of this subject is sad, scary and inhumane. In the end, we should all treat each other equally and be open and welcoming to these immigrants. Spreading love and kindness will always be remembered. Know that it is the little things such as this that will bring us far in life.
Hope you’re having a blessed day/night and hopefully you enjoyed my thoughts on this subject.
