Madness – Too Horrific to Understand

Muslims Murdered

I’m so sad. How can anyone kill another person, let alone people you do not know? Is the attack on Muslims in Quebec a result of mental illness or a condition of a personality disorder? If it’s a result of terrorist influence, it would appear he was a troubled person with little strength of character or integrity. Whatever the motivation, whatever his issue, Muslim and non-Muslims need to guard against being drawn into hysteria. There will always be persons who turn to violence in spite of the influence of law-abiding communities.

I was so filled with awe in seeing the thousands of people drawn to support the Muslim community. This is Canada. We care. No matter your ethnic background or religious beliefs, we stand with you. Not just because you are Canadian, but because you are an individual in our community that has promised to protect you and your rights. Free to practice your faith. Free to express the diversity of your skills, ideas, talents. Weave your own music, culture, and language in with that of those who came from Europe, Asia, Africa, India – everywhere.

There are no walls here.

O Canada OUR NATIONAL ANTHEM (English version) O Canada! Our home and native land! True patriot love in all thy sons command. With glowing hearts we see thee rise, The True North strong and free! From far and wide O Canada, we stand on guard for thee. God keep our land glorious and free! O Canada, we stand on guard for thee. O Canada, we stand on guard for thee.

En francais:

O Canada!
Terre de nos aïeux,
Ton front est ceint de fleurons glorieux.

Car ton bras sait porter l’épée,
Il sait porter la croix.

Ton histoire est une épopée,
Des plus brillants exploits.

Et ta valeur, de foi trempée,
Protégera nos foyers et nos droits.

Protégera nos foyers et nos droits.
