Torn apart by hate

Espiritu en Fuego/A Fiery Spirit

Jesus said, Suffer the little children to come unto me. Jesus said that any one who causes harm or injury to children it would be better if a millstone were hung around their necks.

Hell awaits Agent Orange aka #45 as well as televangelists, fundamentalists and evangelicals. Evil and wicked they are agents of the devil not God.

I see the children of my Great great great Grandmother being torn from her outstretched arms. She remembers when the blue eyed flaxen haired demons tore her from her Motherland tribe. Her wails course through the centuries.

I see my Native American ancestors torn from their Land, Tribes and families and forced into Indian schools.

I see the suffering of Jewish families torn apart during the Holocaust. Condemned to Concentration camps.

I see Japanese Americans torn from their homes and forced into Internment camps.

I see history repeating itself once more while…

O Allah, by Your knowledge of the unseen and Your power over creation, keep me alive so long as You know such life to be good for me and take me if You know death to be better for me.

O Allah, make me fearful of You whether in secret or in public and I ask You to make me true in speech, in times of pleasure and anger.I ask you to make me moderate in times of wealth and poverty and I ask You for everlasting bliss and joy which will never cease.I ask You to make me pleased with what You have decreed and for an easy life after death.I ask You for the sweetness of looking upon Your Face and a longing to encounter You in a manner which does not entail a calamity which will bring about harm nor a trial which will cause deviation.

Wait on God and be of good courage. The Lord God is with you.

Come, come, let us appreciate each other, know the value of each other. Because you never know we might be suddenly separated. Now that our Prophet has said: ‘The believer is the mirror of the believer.’ why are we turning our face from the mirror?

In the month long battle for the 8.1 square mile island the Marines and Navy suffered nearly 7,000 men killed and 19,000 wounded. Over 18,000 of the island’s Japanese defenders died…
