Practice tolerance after tragedy

Letter to the Editor

On April 30, 2013


In the aftermath of the tragedy in Boston, I recalled what the great writer Arthur C. Clarke said 60 years ago in his famous short story, "The Nine Billion Names of God." No matter what you call God, your prayers are heard. I pray both for the victims of the Boston bombing and for those who did it.

It says in the Qur'an that those who do evil are rewarded with evil and that those who do good are forever blessed in the eyes of God. Regardless of personal beliefs, people the world over can acknowledge the truth of that statement.

Faith tries to teach us to treat every one like we would want to be treated. Please remind those who would plot revenge for this horrible act: Dig two graves because hate only destroys the hater.

Remember that all the students at Kirkwood Community College and people from every corner of the globe have a right to happiness. No matter where a person is from, a stranger is a friend you just haven't met yet.
