After spending last night crying my eyes out, it comforts me to know that the Sikh community is stepping up to help in Manchester. I could have easily been one of the victims. I'm 18, like Ariana Grande, and could have attended one of her concerts (locally of course). Usually, events like this do not emotionally affect me, but this hits too close to home. It's not just happening in Western countries but also in countries like the Philippines right now. But of course, American news outlets are not going to cover that. It's time for the world to stop and reflect on how we treat each other. And it's time that we put a stop to terrorism/ISIS. This cannot go on much longer.
Update (7/21/2018): Thank God ISIS is nearly obliterated. But that doesn't mean I'm still not on my toes though. The US has a mass shooting epidemic, and whenever I have bad dreams, it always involves me being in a mass shooting.
