Hate Not Here.
In our daily lives, it’s so easy to take an insult personally and hold a grudge against a certain someone for a period of time. We’re only human, and forgiveness can be more difficult than we imagine sometimes. That being said, we could all learn a lesson from army veteran Chris Herbert.
It seems that everywhere you turn these days, anti-Muslim sentiment plagues people’s thoughts, words, and social media posts, from the most famous politicians to the many workers and neighbors around us, and even people that have no personal experience with people who practice Islam are quick to make misinformed decisions based on the rumors and lies they’ve read on the internet or heard on the TV.
Chris Herbert’s life was changed forever after he lost his leg in Iraq, and given today’s strong anti-Muslim feelings, he decided it was time to lash out against the hate spewing from people who are much less affected by terrorism than he has been.
Start the slideshow below to read Herbert’s powerful message, then SHARE this simple truth to stop hate.
“Blaming all Muslims for the actions of groups like Daeshe and the Taliban, is like blaming all Christians for the actions of the KKK or Westboro Baptists Church.”
