“Wrong. Things like this happen everywhere. All over the world. It is nothing new. But it’s not just bombs that kill. It’s guns. It’s war. It’s greed. It’s hatred. Hatred is what killed those three people on Monday. Hatred is what killed nearly 3,000 people on 9/11. It was hatred that killed nearly one million Rwandans in the early ’90s. It was hatred that killed nearly six million Jewish people during WWII. Since the beginning of time, people have been killing other people for what they believe or don’t believe, for where and how they live, for what they think, for what they look like and for who they love. Will we never learn? Will the hatred never cease?
We can only hope.”
