A word on the world

I am busy working on my novel, so this post is going to be short. In light of recent world events, I feel the need to say something that I've been wanting to say for many years now:

In every country, in every religion, and in every culture, there are jackasses. And unfortunately, those jackasses speak the loudest, drowning out the voices of the more reasonable-minded individuals. These obnoxious jackasses captivate the media, which projects their image across the world for everyone to see and judge (never mind what the reasonable people are doing, because that doesn't make for interesting news). But we should not base our opinions of an entire group on the actions of its most idiotic and misguided members. Because when we do, we only help to perpetuate the ignorance and prejudice that fuel their jackassery, and we become jackasses too.

To whoever reads this, wherever you are, I hope that you can still see past the bad to find the good. And more than anything, I hope that peace finds you soon. That's all I have to say...
