Acts of Terrorism

On tuesday night(01june2014), i received a message from a friend of mine on whats app saying terrorists were planning an attack on my city, Kampala so i should avoid public places with mass gatherings like shopping malls and bus parks. Not the first time i am hearing of a terror attack on our fair city or country. Living in today's world we are constantly receiving news about terror plots or actual terror attacks. Just recently kenya our neighbor suffered another attack in Nairobi at a market and before that there was the west gate mall attack in Nairobi.



Some time back the priest giving a homily on sunday talked about the kind of world we are living in now. He said we are so paranoid now that we might start running from one another soon. But can you really blame people for paranoia in the world we live in now. I do not understand terrorism and i cannot condone it. Some people say they use it as a means to bring about positive change in the world but how can you justify killing innocent people. Others say they are fighting for their causes however misguided they are. The ends do not justify the means in this case and the result of these acts of terror is more violence.

Look at this world. People are even selfish in their suffering. There is so much pain in this world, let us not think that our suffering is the greatest. So even those who are wronged by others or who believe their suffering is caused by others should not exact vengeance on the world. Let us heal the world. Let us respect all our differences and unite to rid the world of the senseless acts of terror!
