Start #DoSomething

Here we are again… Another useless and pointless attack.
This time it was Orlando.

Right now all social networks are full of hashtags such as PrayforOrlando or IamwithOrlando. People tend to share them to show their reaction against these events and their sympathy towards those who have been affected by these terrible events.

Some people just follow the trend and share it to have likes and their five minutes of popularity, although they don’t even know what has happened in Orlando.

I used to be one of those who shared the hashtag to show my sympathy, but in this occasion I am not going to. Not because I do not believe in the power of social networks, but for a much simpler reason: I don’t think Prayforsomething is the solution anymore.

I just realised that it is not a matter of praying since the solution to these attack is not up in the sky or in the hands of whatever God you believe in, but it is here, among normal people. It is time to stop praying and to start doing something.

The real problem is that we live in a world where everybody wants their opinion to prevail over the others, even if this means to take up arms and have no respect for the rest of the world.

There are still some people who want to force us to believe in their god or try to teach us that love is something which should only happen between a man and a woman.

I have always asked myself what is the difference between every religion: if there is a god or any other Higher Spirit, I am sure their only concern is that people love each other and live happily until the day they die.
If this is true, I think that the only thing that makes each god different to one another is the way we call him. One god with several names based upon different cultures…why do people find it so hard to believe?

Also what is the difference between a man and a woman, who love each other, and two people of the same-sex, who love each other?
What is the difference between Love and…Love?

People still prefer to fight against each other, rather than talking and finding solutions simply because no-one has ever earned a living through conversations.

We should stop praying and start talking to each other.
