Over the last several days, extremists identified with the so-called Islamic State detonated bombs in Baghdad, Beirut and Paris, killing and wounding more than 500 people. We're all saddened and angered by the loss of so much life—the killing of innocent people, identified as Shia or Christian, is wrong, for there is no God that asks men to kill those different from ourselves.
They say when you kill one person you kill all mankind. I would like to suggest that we should all meditate and pray for peace, to counterbalance all of this violence.
We must all be united in these difficult times, Muslims, Christians, Jews and everyone else, against these extremists—and whomever is funding them.
