But most importantly, this time of pain and anguish should not make us cower and see the Somali Community, among us as the enemies. Or that Islam promotes violence. If we do, we are helping the Al Shabaab propagate the idea of this being a religious war.
We are Kenyans. The blood of Kenyans was spilled on Thursday in Garissa, in Mpeketoni, in Westgate, in Mandera and many other terrorist attacks. We have lost too much. If love, however hard it is to find it, is the last thing left in us, let us share it.
Share the Love.
