The Stoning of Soraya M.

I watched The Stoning of Soraya M. today. It's based on a true story. Deeply moving. I could never imagine humans can do such things. We'll I've seen photos of war, their stories and their real stories. Children thrown in the air and being is catched by a bayonet by the Japanese soldiers. That's why sometimes even though it has been long gone I can't help but feel so much hatred against the Japanese and Spanish people of what they had done.

And they have never paid for it. Of course, they could never repay what they have done. I've discovered something new too. I've learned that I am not afraid of death but of dying. If God could only be so kind to give us a button that we can just click anytime and that would end life I would have ended mine already.

  1. consider this: long before the Spanish arrived on our shores and long before the Japanese came, we were doing cruel things to each other. The dark side of humanity is not bounded by a particular nationality. It is something within all of us and on that basis, we share something in common with the Spanish and Japanese and have compassion for the twistedness that would allow such things.
